And in the same telegram, the S.V. he added that due to the solemn honor of the thirtieth day I would have received the necessary appeals. Being at present far from Pesaro and not wanting in any way that Rossini's Institute is second to anyone in the tribute of devotion to the memory of Verdi, I would be infinitely grateful if you would like to send me the instructions here, in Rome - Via Nazionale 82 ..."
