Scope and content

Richter reports to Carl Fuchs after an extensive medical examination with his doctor, Dr. Furth, who has advised him to cease all artistic activity. He is never sure of not passing out and at the wedding reception, he had to leave the room several times as he was almost fainting. Vigorous physical movements are strictly forbidden. Could he then conduct a concert? He encloses Dr. Furth's letter to confirm his decision, although he knows that everyone will believe his word. Richter sends greetings to his fellow artists. He regrets that he cannot follow his heart but hopes very much that his heart's wish may be granted later. In a post-script, Richter requests that Fuchs returns Dr. Furth's letter. Balling was informed 4-5 weeks ago of the eventuality of his not being there. Dated 3 Mar 1912.
