Sehr geehrter Herr Doktor! 1

Der Sammler Meinert scheint noch in Dessau zu leben und nur einen Teil seiner Autographen für einen verarmten Bruder verkauft zu haben. Z. B. die „Winterreise“ an Prof. Siegfried Ochs in Berlin.


Mit den besten Grüßen
Ihr ergebener

Dear Doctor, 1

The collector Meinert appears still to live in Dessau, and to have sold only a portion of his autograph manuscripts for an impoverished brother – e.g. Winterreise to Prof. Siegfried Ochs in Berlin.


With best wishes,
Yours truly,

Footnotes

1 Receipt of this letter is not recorded in Schenker's diary; the Schenkers left for the summer vacation on June 30, so it is likely that Schenker received it before departure. The letter was presumably forwarded by Schenker to UE and retained in the latter's archive.
