Buenos Aires, Argentina
November 4, 1947
Greetings to you and Annette from Buenos Aires. I have been wondering whether you have any more definite plans about the recording of the violin sonata for John Hammond. I have never heard from him as to what financial arrangements he was planning. Naturally I am referring to my activity as pianist, since the composer royalty is set by law. Also, I am curious to know how Petrillo's recent ruling affects us. I will only be here until the 15th of the month. Therefore, if I don't hear from you or him before then, you'd better write me c/o Boosey & Hawkes in New York to reach me by December 1st. I plan to be back by that date, but will be spending December 2 to 4 in Cleveland, Ohio.
Things have been going fine down here. You ought to get here sometime yourself.
Mr. Louis Kaufman
