Diary entry by Schenker, dated November 27, 1910

27 /11. Frau Dr. Elsa Bienenfeld|1 (”N.W.Journal[“]2) citiert meine “chrom. fant.”; aber nach Journalistenart – wie korrumpiert3 doch dieser Beruf selbst ein Weib!— wieder ähnlich, wie Dr. Mohr|4: die Hauptsachen stellt sie mit “ist” vor5, so als wären sie ihr schon längst bekannt gewesen[;] nur eine Kleinigkeit dagegen citiert sie mit “sei,” als mir selbst neu zuhörend, u. ihr soeben erst bekannt gemacht

Diary entry by Schenker, dated November 27, 1910

November 27. Dr. Elsa Bienenfeld1 (Neues Wiener Journal|2) quotes my Chromatic Fantasy & Fugue, but in a journalistic manner—How greatly does this profession corrupt3 even a woman!—again just like Dr. Mohr4: she presents the principal points with "is“ [indicative], thus as if they had been known to her since long ago; conversely only a point of detail does she quote with "is“ [subjunctive], as attributable newly to me, and having only just become known to her.
