    Richard Strauss Typed Letter Signed. A one-page typed letter signed "Yours most Sincerely Richard Strauss." 1924. Letter on Staatsoper stationary dated Vienna, 5 May 1924. Translation of the German text: "Dear Frau Strauss, Warmest thanks for kindly finding us a cook. Admittedly she is rather expensive but if she should fulfill all our requirements she will be welcome. She will though have no court dinners to cook in Garmisch, but instead all kinds of cakes and snack baking. The main question will be how she gets on with our plain Bavarian cooking. As she will work in Garmisch only till the autumn a passport certificate will probably be unnecessary. Many thanks and a good cure in Marienbad. A prity that you cannot be here for the Strauss week. With best regards from all or family to yours, Yours most sincerely Richard Strauss." Letter has been folded for mailing, but clean and crisp. Near fine condition.
