In part: “I received your second letter with invtation to participate in jury of the contest in USA…I can’t accept your proposition because I’ll be at this time in a long concert tour throu Germany…Unfortunately I hadn’t any possibility to play chess this season. I had many long and difficult concert tours.” In fine condition, with central vertical and horizontal folds. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope addressed in his own hand, including his name in the return address area. Originates from the collection of American violinist and pianist Louis Persinger (1887–1966), who trained at the Leipzig Conservatory and later taught at Juilliard, mentoring the likes of Yehudi Menuhin, Ruggiero Ricci, and Isaac Stern.
