Good luck! I hope we’ll soon – we, Maxim,1 the Misses Franchi,2 I, and in short all other Italian friends and acquaintances of yours – we’ll, I say, hear and see you in some talkie as a fiddler and a sheik – an Al Jolson of the violin. Do you remember our slang lessons? You see: I took advantages of you the most brazen-facedly, but as for you now the saddest thing is certainly whether I intend to go on. Put your heart at ease: it was so kind of you to get wasting your time initiating me to the mysteries of your language and nation that I cannot forget it and make myself so bold as to write you all what follows.

In Italy there is only the Tauchnitz edition to supply them, but this one is too scanty. I should then like to agree with you about a kind of business. Methinks you told me once you should have accepted such an agreement: each of us should have sent to the other the worthiest novelties of his own literature.

In this way I can send you books and you can then select those that you want to buy from those that you but care to read. Now I don’t know whether or not I shall be able to do this, but I’ll try. The fine on any loaned book is one cent (1¢) al giorno dopo la scadenza del privilegio, che generalmente è di 14 giorni.
