Autograph letter undated [c.1875].  Madme Schwabe is presumably Julie Salis Schwabe (1818-1896) of Crumpsall House near Manchester, who hosted Jenny Lind and Frederic Chopin as well as founding the Italian Ladies’ Philanthropic Association as a Garibaldi supporter.  Fred was her third son, and Christian Reimers – the cello ‘master’ recommended to him by Piatti – was a close friend of Robert Schumann, famous for having work-shopped the Cello Concerto with the composer.
