Scope and content

Speelman writes to Fuchs of the suggestion made by a man at the beginning of the season that the quartet should appear at some music halls. At first Speelman believed that this was a joke but the man has written to him [Speelman encloses the letters for Fuchs and instructs him to keep them] and if the audience likes them, they will have 6 or 8 weeks of engagements. Speelman asks Fuchs to discuss the matter with Brodsky and Briggs and to write to him at the Hotel Palais Royal Amsterdam so that he receives the letter on Wednesday 27th. The letter is dated 21 Sep.
