Dear Alan,

   two short points which I was able to check today. The tempo direction at the beginning of the Wagner setting ofThe Two Grenadiers is Moderato; the passage I quote is subject to the later direction etwas schneller. I think I need some powerful editorial directive as to how that is best deals with.

   Secondly, Thibaut went to Heidelberg as a member of the law faculty in autumn 1806. Though his teaching duties no doubt got lighter in his last years, I can't find any evidence that he actually retired; it looks to me as if died in harness (1840), poor old beast.

   yours ever
