Well the fact is that I went to a medium and had a personal discussion
with Mahler. The problem was that he was so full of guilt that he could
not really come to any conclusion on anything. He simply kept
apolgizing for all the anguish through which he had put me.

I told him that he had not allowed enough time to switch to the E-flat
clarinet part from the b.c. and he asked if thought that perhaps a tenor
sax might have been more suitable. I told him to go screw himself.

It was an interesting conversation.
