Autograph note (unsigned), one page, 8,75 x 11,5 inch, without date (circa 1910), `Graben-Hotel - Wien` letterhead, apparently a draft letter to an anonymous theater critic - regarding the perfomance of an actor acclaimed by the critic, but severely disapproved by Altenberg himself, written in black ink - additionally numbered `253` by an unknown hand to the lower right corner, with intersecting mailing folds and a small tear (0,3 inch) to the upper left edge - in fine to very fine condition.
