Milan 23 Dec. 90
Ill.mo Sig. Nuti ,
When Sonzogno staged Lohengrin there , the papers absolutely savaged M. Mugnone . I am very anxious to have those articles. Since it might be difficult to procure the issues themselves, perhaps it will be easier to find the collection in some library and copy only the few lines of criticism concerning the ensemble work and the conducting, accompanied by the title of the paper and the date. All I really need are 3 or 4 of the more important publications, or those that especially disparage the performance. The matter is extremely important, and I urge you to take care of it right away.
Meanwhile my cordial best wishes to you and your family for the approaching holidays, and with respect I remain
Yours most sincerely, Giulio Ricordi
