On Beethoven's recommendation, having
successfully intervened on Beethoven's behalf
and secured overdue annuities, according to the
Finanz-patent of 1811 (Kinsky, Lobkowitz, Lichnowsky,
Rudolph et al.), Ludwig Koechel (although qualified in law himself)
has retained the services of the Czech lawyer
and Appellate Councillor Dr Johann Kanka (1772-1875)
(kanka is Czech for blot) to defend him in this deformation case.
Dr Kanka is a composer himself - including four
unpublished quintets for wind (including clarinet) and piano
(I have copies)

Dr Ludwig Ritter von Koechel, it is claimed, can not pay his telephone bill.
Yet he is a famed botanist, geologist, and was tutor
to the four sons of Archduke Carl up to 1842, on which
occasion he was awarded the Knights' Cross of the Order of Leopold.
Only as a man of PRIVATE MEANS does he have
the time indulge his passions for plants and rocks
or to track down Mozart's manuscripts and catalogue his works (1862) added
the biography by Otto Jahn (1813-1869) or publish the anonymous
pamphlet (1851) Im Sachen Mozarts (has it been translated?)

More likely to be a clerical error at Bell's
