Example text

But if you are as conscientious, my dear brother, as many other publishers, who grind to death us poor composers, you will know pretty well how to derive ample profit when the works appear. I now briefly state what you can have from me. 1st. ) This Septet pleases very much. [2] 2d. A Grand Symphony with full orchestra [the 1st]. 3rd.
