May have revised his 2nd and 3rd trios in April 1831, when he listed them in his first datebook (in manuscript at Goethe University). The 1832 publication could be of this 1831 revision? Also, a trio in F-sharp minor or A major is listed March 21 1830 in his datebook with a theme that I do not see in this trio- perhaps the Lemoine publication is of a different, otherwise lost "trio no.2" than this one. (Comparing the Lemoine-published early Hiller trios with those published by Schlesinger would settle the matter!)

A previous claim that Lemoine published Hiller's second and third trios in 1830 is now doubtful. BNF claims a date of ca.1830 but the plate number 2770 HL places the publication date in 1842 according to Lemoine's plate table.
