"I have to attend Laloy's premiere; naturally that is tomorrow, on Friday... Would you change the enclosed tickets for Saturday? Thanks again..."
Slightly worn and browned; creased at folds and upper outer corner of final blank folio; small rust stain from paper clip to inner margin of final folio, not affecting text.
"Laloy [1874-1944] was a noted defender of contemporary French music and was a close friend of, and mediator between, Ravel and Debussy, with whom he collaborated on some unrealized stage works; he was also the author of the first major work (and the first in the French language) on Debussy." John Trevitt in Grove Music Online.
