Dated January 2, 1835, in the last year of Naderman's life and ten years after he became the first harp professor at the Conservatoire de Paris. Writing to a M. FerriÃ¨re, apparently an employee of the Conservatoire, Naderman enquires whether FerriÃ¨re has heard from three other musicians in regard to an upcoming project, one of whom will play "the violin solo. I believe that these gentlemen were supposed to send their responses to the Conservatory." 1 p.
