Sehr geehrter Herr Director! 1

Noch eine Bitte. Ich vergaß Herrn Hofrath Wiener in unserem Unterrichtsministerium: auch er soll ein Exemplar erhalten, vorausgesetzt daß die „ Edit .“ nicht auch sonst schon an ihn ihre Nova leitet. Ich schreibe in finem 2 auch selbst an den Hofrath, u. bitte Sie sehr, an ihn nicht zu vergessen!


Besten, besten Dank.
Mit ausgez. Hochachtung
ergeb.

Dear Director, 1

One more request. I forgot Court Counsellor Wiener of our Ministry of Education: he, too, should receive a copy, provided that UE does not already direct its latest publications to him in its own right. I will ultimately 2 write to the Privy Counsellor myself, and ask you please not to forget him.


My very grateful thanks,
With kind regards,
Your devoted
