Nov 13 1950
Dear Sergei Alexandrovitch:
Many, many thanks for that wonderful telegram you sent me for my anniversary. Nicky Nabokoff read it for the audience at the concert. So sorry you couldn't have been with us all.
To-morrow Kubelik is performing my Third Symphony with the Chicago Symphony. Listening to him rehearse today brought memories of your performance of the Symphony here four years ago.
I will be seeing you soon -- in New York or Boston.
With all my best greetings to you and Olga,
Address after Wednesday:
Palisades, New York.
P.P.S.: Do you remember the Elegy I spoke of composing based on themes of my Dickinson songs? It unfortunately remained only a project, because I was so occupied completing my Piano Quartet. Too bad!
