Tito Ricordi to Bottesini (Genova, 12 Oct 1859)
Carissimo Tito,

As Signor Willert Beale of the firm Beale of London is going there, I don't know to whom better to recommend him than to you knowing how great is your kindness and how much friendship you hold for me.

Anything that you do for him will be considered by me as if you had done it for myself and I will be totally grateful to you.

He will be in Milan tomorrow (Friday) morning at the Albergo dell'Europa

Colgo questa occasione per dirti mille cose affettuose estensibili a tutta la famiglia. Il tuo aff.mo amico

Gio. Bottesini
