Sehr geehrter Herr Direktor!

Unsere Briefe haben sich gekreuzt1 u. ich beeile mich, den Empfang des Ihrigen zu bestätigen. Ich danke herzlichst für das offene Aussprachen des Sachverhaltes, wobei ich nur bedauern, daß H. Dir. Bopp,2 der, wie Ihr eigener Brief aus den J. 1908 bestätigt,3 der allererste Anreger der Bach - Ausgabe selbst gewesen, eben nicht schon im Vorjahre des ausxxxxxxx den Widerruf bekanntgegeben, u. mir damit einen Schaden an Geld zergeht erspart hat. Sie sind aber schlecht informiert worden, wenn Sie von einer “Textkritik” sprechen. Was es in Wahrheit ist, wird ja in absehbarer Zeit ganz genau zusehen sein. Für Ihre gute Meinung über meine Arbeiten danke ich ganz besonders, u. noch mehr für das Versprechen der Korrekturen für den Spätherbst!

Mit besten Grüßen
Ir ganz ergeb

Dear Director,

Our letters have crossed1 and I hasten to acknowledge receipt of yours. I thank you cordially for your candid views of the matter; I only regret that Director Bopp,2 who, as your own letter from the year 1908 confirms,3 was himself the very first to propose the Bach edition, did not last year make known his withdrawal and so avoid spare me some financial embarrassment. You are, however, badly informed when you speak of “text criticism.” What it is in reality will certainly become crystal clear in the foreseeable future. I thank you most especially for your good opinion of my works, and even more for the promise of proofs for the late Fall!

With best wishes,
Yours truly,
[ sign'd: ] H. Sch[enker]
