Sehr geehrter Herr Direktor !

Aus Anlaß einer Pause, die sich mir naturgemäß nach der bald bevorstehenden Herausgabe des ersten Halbbandes meines “Kontrapunkts”1 darbieten wird, erlaube ich mir Sie neuerdings zu ersuchen, auf die Druckerei eine kleine Pression zu üben: vielleicht wird es doch möglich, daß ich noch um die[corr] Mitte dieses Monats wenigstens den ersten Teil der Korrekturen2 erhalten.

Mit besten Grüßen
Ihr ergb

Dear Director,

In anticipation that I shall, all being well, have a break following the impending publication of the first half-volume of my Counterpoint,1 I take the liberty of asking you once again to try to exert a little pressure on the printers. Perhaps it will be possible for me to get hold of at least the first part of the proofs2 around the middle of this month.

With best wishes,
Yours truly,
[ sign’d: ] H. Schenker
