Sehr geehrter Herr!

In der Hast des Absendens1 vergaß ich zu bemerken, daß die blauen Striche einen kleineren Druck (ähnlich wie die Anmerkungen in Bd. I ) zu bedeuten haben. Und wie gesagt, in wenigen Tagen folgt noch ein Manuscriptteil2 mit einigen Erläuterungen.

Mit ausgez. Hochachtung

With kind regards,
[ sign’d: ] H Schenker
September [2]7, 1908
