Footnotes

1 Writing of this postcard is not recorded in Schenker's diary.

2 Apparently at his presumed meeting with Hertzka on the morning of November 27 (OC 52/29 and WSLB 26, November 23 and 24) Schenker undertook to write some additional remarks for the "large edition" of the Niloff Instrumentations-Tabelle just about to go to press. This material will expand considerably before submission, and lead to difficulties: see WSLB 29 and WSLB 30 and OC 52/399-401, December 16 and 18.
