Lieber Prof. v. Cube ! 1

Vielen, vielen Dank für Briefchen 2 u. Prospekt. 3 (Von Vrieslander erhielt ich erste Nachricht über den Prosp.) Die Tragödie im so schwergeprüften Hause meines l. Prof. Violin ist erschütternd. 4 Ich wende mich daher an Sie mit der Bitte, mir womöglich postwendend 5–10 Prospekte (geht das nicht, so mindestens 2–3) nachzusenden. In einem Bf an meinen l. alten Freund V. werde ich einige Vorschläge unterbreiten. Herzlichste Wünsche u. Grüße von uns Beiden


Ihr

Dear Professor von Cube, 1

Many, many thanks for your note 2 and the prospectus. 3 (I first had word of the prospectus from Vrieslander.) The tragedy in the house of my dear Professor Violin, which is being tested so sorely, is shocking. 4 I am therefore turning to you with a request to send me, if possible by return of post, five to ten copies of the prospectus (if this is not possible, then at least two or three). In a letter to my dear old friend Violin, I shall propose a few suggestions. Most cordial wishes and greetings from the two of us,


Yours,
[signed:] H. Schenker
