Dear Alan,

   corrected proofs returned herewith. I'm looking forward to seeing a proof of the text.

   A few small points for your consideration; in the text, I imagine there's some reference made to the fact that it's a lecture or address to the R.M.A.? It's still clearly oral in style – not to say racy.

   In ex 6, isn't it better to have composer first then op no, eg Beethoven op 84; Schumann op 9?

The further evidence, on Schumann's reading of Klüber to which the text refers is due to appear (after three years!) in the November MT.

   Shall we lunch again quite soon?

   yours ever
