Dear Ma & Pa --
I suppose you have seen most of the criticisms by now. The performance was a very fine one, and Koussevitzky speaks of bringing it to New York in April. I think he was disappointed that the criticisms were not more enthusiastic.
My Two String Quartet Pieces are being performed here on Thursday night. So perhaps I may stay over until Friday. If you don't hear from me until Friday evening don't be surprised.
Love to all
