Dear Nicholas --
The clipping, the letter, the dream -- all gave me much pleasure -- even the few mistakes in English!
I was going to write also to Mr. Koussevitsky to express my gratitude for all he intends doing, but I am afraid of boring him with my continual thanks. I admire his courage in planning to play the score again in spite of the awful criticisms.
Shortly after the concert of the League I went up to Rochester for a day and lectured to the Teusday[sic] Musicale on guess what -- JAZZ! I was well payed d'ailleurs, and in the evening met Paul Hogan at the Gleasons' house. He seemed like a charming boy and I was sorry not to have been able to know him better.
When you come to New York this time, you must put aside sufficient time to come to pay me a visit at my house -- I'm looking forward to it.
I embrace you à la russe
P.S. If you can, do let me know as soon as you are informed of the exact date (or dates) when the 'Music for the Thea[tre]' will be given here.
