Meyerbeer informs his correspondent ("Werther Freund") about his effort to secure seats at a theater for him: "[...] has not been able (or willing) yet to tell me whether he will give me a box or just two Sperrsitze for tonight. Only around 4 PM I will learn about it. In any case, however, I will receive the two seats for you and your esteemed wife whom I greet a thousand times..."
Slightly browned and soiled; creased at folds; laid down to second, slightly larger leaf with tape; remnants of former mount to upper edge of verso; very slightly trimmed at right margin.
Neither the theater nor the performance are specified, and none of the persons mentioned in the letter has been identified; the name of the person responsible for the assignment of seats is given but, unfortunately, illegible. Item #25311
