Sehr geehrter Herr Direktor! 1

Verzeihen Sie, wenn ich Ihre Güte noch in Anspruch nehmen u. ich Sie sehr darum bitte, je einen „Niloff“ an Prof. M. Violin, XIV, Sechshauserstr. 126, u. Prof. Ed. Gärtner, III. Metternichgasse 2 7, schicken zu lassen.

Daß ich nicht ganz ohne Scham bin, möge Ihnen die Tatsache beweisen, daß ich die „Ornamentik“ kürzlich 2.mal selbst bei Gutmann gekauft habe, um dem Verlag nicht zur Last zu fallen, dem ich schon mit so vielen Exempl. belastet habe.

Also nur noch dieses Mal.


Mit ausgez Hochachtung

Dear Director, 1

Forgive me if I trespass on your kindness yet again and ask you please to have one copy of "Niloff" each sent to Prof. Moriz Violin, [Vienna] XIV, Sechshauserstraße 126, and Prof. Eduard Gärtner, [Vienna] III, Metternichgasse 7. 2

You can tell that I am not wholly without shame from the fact that I recently twice bought Ornamentation from Gutmann myself so as not to be a burden to the Press, when I have already burdened it with so many copies.

So just this one more time.


With kind regards
Your devoted
