All addressed to Count Andrea Zorzi, an eccentric Venetian nobleman from an ancient family and a supporter of Verdi; he is said to have owned a silver cane upon which the titles of each Verdi opera were engraved as he heard them. Most items with a short sentence or two: "ringrazio e contraccambio auguri di gran cuore".

Condition varies: some are browned; the telegram is chipped with some loss and toning.
