On February 29th last we sent you the original score of your Mass with organ + Double Bass accompaniment for the purpose of making an orchestral score from it. On August 8th last we received the orchestrated score, but the original score was just returned with it. We are now in want of this score as it will be of material assistance to us in making the vocal score, and we shall therefore be glad if you will kindly send it on to us at once. If by any change you have not got it with you in America, will you please write to Austria and give instructions for it to be sent on to us immediately, presuming of course that you left it at your home there.
May we ask you to kindly give this matter your immediate attention as we are in urgent need of the original score
