BEETHOVEN LUDWIG VAN (1770-1827).


L.A.S. "Beethoven",[Baden early September 1823], to Franz Christian KIRCHHOFFER; 1 oblong page in-4, address on the back (fold marks and small hole, letter very well restored and finely doubled on the back, address covered); in German.
Letter concerning the sending of the Missa solemnis to London.
[Kirchhoffer was a cashier at the Hofmann & Goldstein Bank in Vienna, and he helped Beethoven several times in 1823 to send music to their friend Ferdinand RIES (1784-1838) in London, and to transfer money. The idea here is to send the Missa solemnis op. 123, which Beethoven has just completed, to London to Ferdinand Ries in order to find a publisher.] "Mein werther Kirchhoffer. Sollte es nicht möglich seyn, ein paquet durch die Englische Gesandschaft nach London zu schicken erkundigen sir sich gefälligst, ich werde deswegen morgen um Antwort schicken oder wenn sie es den Gelegenheit wegen für gut befinden? auf
Sonntag sehn wir sie gewiß mein Karl und ich bei unß zu tische, das Wetter scheint wieder günstig zu werden, und es wird uns beiden ihre gegenwart recht erfreulich seyn. - Ihr ergebenster Beethoven".
Beethoven asked Kirchhoffer to find out if it would not be possible to send a package to London through the English Embassy. He will send the answer to this question. He invites her to come to his house for dinner on Sunday with his nephew Karl. The weather seems to be getting better and better, and his presence would be a great pleasure for both of them....
