Cosima Wagner Diaries

Disturbed night. In the morning another conference, contracts signed, cordial leave-taking from all participants.

Our first lunch, very happy and gay, all in good health.

I pick up this book again after a break of 10 days. Heavy on my heart lie the mortal sickness of my distant friend and the report in a newspaper that Hans[1] has fallen ill in Moscow! Early to bed.

[1] Hans von Bülow (1830 – 1894), conductor, pianist, composer, frist husband of Cosima and father of her daughters Daniela and Blandine (officially also of Isolde).
