Not illustrated. 1922 edition. Excerpt: ...caused offense to some personage of high rank, for one night he was taken from his bed by the police, brought to Vienna and there allowed twenty-four hours to quit the capital and its environs. He went thereupon to Trieste, where, as we have seen, he later received from Mozart the letter above quoted.

Accordingly, Lorenzo went at once to call on the governor, Count letter written by Da Ponte to Casanova, from Vienna, on June 18th, 1791. Molmenti, Cart. Casan., vol. i, pp. 264-65. On the other hand, Zaguri wrote to the old Venetian adventurer: "He was crazy about the Ferrarese; said he had lost everything for her, but she left him and wrote to him no more." IUa., vol. ii, p. 159. Molmenti, Cart. Casan., vol. ii, p. 149. 48 Memorie, vol. i, p. 160. Who this woman was and what became of her, remains a mystery. W. A.
