Example text

However that may be, your care for my work is in the circumstances all the more gratifying and meritorious, and I offer you my most cordial thanks. The pleasure of a visit to you at Weimar I am* compelled, for reasons connected with my local affairs, to leave to another time. That the performance of my opera would not answer my expectations is the least thing I fear; for from firm conviction I have the most favourable opinion of what diligence and goodwill can do, while I know, on the other hand, how little without these two the amplest resources can achieve for true art.

Take a thousand greetings from your RICHARD WAGNER. ) 20. DEAR FRIEND, Excuse me for applying to you again so soon.

I had forgotten—to say nothing of my immediate past—that my sufficiently public participation in the Dresden rising has placed me WAGNER AND LISZT. 3I towards those royal personages in a position which must make them think of me as one opposed to them on principle, and this perhaps will make it appear strange that now, when the collapse of that rising has reduced me to poverty, I turn for help to them of all others.

My grief and depression are great. I must gain another home and hearth; otherwise all is over with me. My heart is greater than my sense. 28 CORRESPONDENCE OF With Belloni I have been in close consultation, and we have formed the following opinion and the resolution derived therefrom :— In Paris I can do no good at present; my business is to write an opera for Paris; for anything else I am unfit. This object cannot be attained by storm; in the most favourable case I shall achieve the poem in half a year, and the performance in a year and a half.
