Beethoven likely is in Vienna for a lesson for the Archduke. Beethoven had promised that he would have the scores for the 25 Scottish Songs, op.108 on the next mail coach to Berlin, but that was as usual wildly overoptimistic. Beethoven has by now probably finished proofreading and revising the …
Given his established pattern for Saturdays, Beethoven probably gives the Archduke a composition lesson today. Because of the missing conversation books, it’s not entirely clear precisely when Beethoven finally settles on an apartment to rent for the fall. However, as Oliva warned him, he has missed the rental season that …
The Giannatasio family visits Mödling, but they don’t get to see Beethoven long, because he is about to take Karl back to the City. Cajetan Giannatasio del Rio managed a private school for boys, which Karl attended in 1816, in the midst of the acrimonious litigation between Ludwig and Karl’s …
Since Karl is with him in Mödling, Beethoven may not go to Vienna to give the Archduke his usual composition lessons this week until Thursday when he returns Karl to the City.

Beethoven is probably in Vienna giving the Archduke a lesson about this time. He complains elsewhere about having to give lessons two or three times per week (though he exaggerates that he does so for the entire summer, when the lessons did not begin until August). Thus far they have …
Brandenburg, Letter 1411 Continuing the confusion [intentional or otherwise] over the exchange rates for payment of the Missa Solemnis, publisher Nikolaus Simrock writes to Beethoven from Bonn today. The original of the letter is lost, but its contents can be surmised from later correspondence. Simrock points out once more that …
