CommentsThe only mention about the fourth copy [R4] is in the letter to the family in Polička. The recipient of this copy is difficult to determine. The most probably person is former Martinů's student, Czech composer Jan Novák, although in other letters he never name him "Jenda" (from letter Mar 1955-07-16). Although no relevant documents exist to the support the history of [R4]. Is it very likely that, as in the case of R1 and R2, [R4] did not contain any corrections by Martinů because he had no accessto the copy after it was sent.
