Dear Carlos -----
I was sorry to have missed you when I telephoned last night. I arrived in town late -- had a lot to do arranging my trip home -- became quite exhausted -- and called you too late. It would have been nice to see you before leaving.
Anyway, this is just a good-bye note -- and to thank you again for the pleasure of hearing the Salon Mexico in a really authentic performance -- to say the least.
It was a good summer for me -- I finished the arrangement of the Short Symphony for string quartet clarinet and piano before leaving Tlaxcala.
Here's wishing you lots of luck for Cleveland.
My address in N.Y.[:] Hotel Empire -- 63rd & B'way.
