Geehrter Herr Cossmann wäre es der Sache nicht sehr angemessen, wenn Sie einen Sonntag Morgen bestimmten? ich könnte d. 12ten Nov. u. 4. Dec. Ich finde zu solcher Feyer Vormittag sehr passend. Doch, es ist nur ein Vorschlag, ich stehe auch am 15ten Abends mit dem Gdur Trio zu Diensten.

"Frankfurt, October 29th 82
Dear Mr. Cossmann, wouldn't it be appropriate if you chose a Sunday morning? I could do Nov 12th and Dec 4th I find mornings very suitable for such a celebration. Yes, it's just a suggestion, I'll also be at your service on the 15th evening with the G major trio.
Kind regards - yours sincerely
Yours devotedly - Clara Schumann."
