Dear Director,

Please 1 would you very kindly issue instructions for my Op. 111 to be sent, at my expense (that goes without saying, as in previous cases) to the address:

[to the left of para 1, in Schenker's hand: "with discount"]


Lt. Dr. Rudolf Steglich
4th Company, L. T. R. 133

[to right of address in Schenker's hand: "3978 33h"]

(This address is sufficient even without fieldpost, etc.) The addressee is a Leipzig musician who published a very large monograph in the Bach-Jahrbuch , 2 and mentioned in it my Ornamentation as well as my Bach edition 3 extraordinarily warmly. Please have a payment order sent to me.


With grateful thanks in advance,
and with best wishes,
Yours,
[signed:] H. Schenker February 23, 1918
