Giacomo Meyerbeer
Paris. Giacomo Meyerbeer writes a letter to Fryderyk Chopin: "Dear and dignified master. I tremendously regret that I wasn’t at home when you honoured me with your visit. Today I am asking you for a favour. I have been introduced to Ms. Merli, an 8-years old girl, blind Italian pianist; in my opinion she is a veritable, wonderful genius and talent. Would you be kind enough to deliver a lesson to her? Of course only after your concert, because until that time you are certainly too busy to be able to dedicate even a moment to anything else. I would really like to enable this young interesting person to have the opportunity to listen to you; and due to the fact she is not wealthy, it would be a good deed if you could send her and her mother two tickets for your concert, I would feel infinitely obliged. Please, accept, dear and dignified master, the expressions of best feelings from dedicated to you Meyerbeer."
