Strauss writes:

Dear Friend!

Hearty thanks for the letter and lovely article! It would please me very much if Mr. Cheuvet wishes to perform “Feuersnot”: this needs only an excellent high baritone (Kunrad). But it is unlikely that I can go to Vichy. Middle July (24th) “Friedenstag” in Munich, second half of August I am going for the cure to Baden near Zurich. “Daphne” (Dresden) 15th October!

With best wishes, Your,

Garmisch, May 28, 1938.
