To his friend and publisher Fritz Simrock, consoling his friend by writing of his admiration for him, and hoping that Simrock's family problems will soon be over and that he will soon be able to listen and play music again, sending greetings to his wife and discussing a visit to Berlin, and explaining his reluctance to go even though he is inundated with invitations both there and in Leipzig.
