c.1984.6.2

Please tell your servant, dear Z., to tell the person he recommended to me not to come to me this year, as the matter of the bill has not yet been corrected—But in a few days I will tell your servant when the other person can come to me—I usually go to the Archduke Karl, where one at least doesn’t get any poisoned wine.

In haste,

Yours,

Beethoven
