To his friend Sybil Seligman, in Italian. He was not very well and on the evening of the premiere he was exhausted, and forgot everything, and everyone. The show went very well: great ovation, especially in the second act. He is a little better now, and asks for forgiveness for his forgetfulness. But he is not well, he is too sad and the life he leads weighs on him.
