Geehrter, Lieber Herr Dr Jonas! Vor Allem wieder: ein ganz besonderes Lob Ihrem Kapitel über Text u. Musik! - Dank für l. Brief u. Fehlerverzeichnis.1 Es gibt Leser solcher Bücher, deren Teilnahme sich ausschliesslich darin ausdruckt, daß sie dem Verfasser Druckfehler monieren — balde, balde werden auch Sie sie kennen lernen.2

Wir gedenken hier, wenn möglich u. tunlich, bis Sept. hier zu bleiben. Stich u Druck haben begonnen. – Von Hob.3 fehlt auch mir einer Antwort auf Bf u. Drucksachensendung.2

H. Roth|4 fehlt ein gesicherter Instinkt, er wird daher durch geschäftliche Rücksichtnahmen, die sehr durchsichtig sind, abgewandelt, bald geht {recto} er mit, bald entfernt er sich, kommt aber wieder. Z.B.: Im Verhältnis zu mir: die neueste Phase, er ist wieder bei [corr. from auf] mir, — er ist sehr eitel, preziös. Vriesl.,5 Furtw.6 hatten Verdruß mit ihm.7

Besten Grüße von uns Beiden[.]
Ihr
[ sign'd: ] H Schenker

Esteemed, dear Dr. Jonas! Above all, again: heartiest praise for your chapter on text and music! Thanks for kind letter and errata list.1 There are readers of such books whose participation is expressed exclusively in that they harp at the author about misprints — soon, very soon you too will get acquainted with them.2

We contemplate, if possible and feasible, remaining here until September. Engraving and printing have begun. I too lack any answer from Hoboken3 to letter and parcel of printed matter2

Mr. Roth4 lacks a secure instinct, he is therefore swayed by business considerations that are very transparent; sometimes he {recto} responds, sometimes he withdraws but then comes back. For example, in relation to me: the latest phase, he is again with me — he is very haughty, affected. Vrieslander,5 Furtwängler6 had aggravation with him.7

Best greetings from us both.
Yours,
[ sign’d: ] H. Schenker
