      ". . . I should like Mr. G.J. Feige to be asked to see just one performance of the Kreutzer Opera 'Das Nachtlager von Granada' and if he finds it suitable for us, to order it. It has had great success in Vienna and it has already been produced to great applause at several North German theaters. Should you see Kreutzer, . . . thank him in my name for his friendly report of the performance of 'Jessonda.' If the newly discovered church-play of Mozart is obtainable, please bring it along for our club . . . ."
