Handwritten letter from Schenker to Hertzka (UE), dated February 3, 1912

Dear Director,

Enclosed is gathering 8, which also contains the structural diagram of the second movement.1 My instructions are given very precisely and clearly, so I hope that things will go more smoothly with the second diagram than with the first.

With kind regards,
Yours truly,
[ signed: ] H. Schenker
