Dear Maestro,

For your great kindness to send me the score of your Symphony No. 8 with a kind dedication please accept my most cordial thanks.
I was very pleased to receive the score and of course I have read it with great interest.  I can only congratulate you on this monumental work which is full of expressive strength.
With kindest regards,
Yours always sincerely,

Jean Sibelius
