Delius in Leipzig - 18 February, 1888

from Delius: A Life in Letters 1862-1908, page 12:

I should like to let you know what pleasure your quartet gave me & in what a strange mood it left me. It will be of little importance to you if I tell you how much I love & esteem you, but it is true & comes from my heart & so I thank you for all the pleasure that I feel in your works.
