Publisher. Info. Holograph manuscript, 1934. May 18.
Misc. Notes Uses Fazer (publisher) of Helsinki paper- perhaps a sign that this was a copy meant for consideration by that publisher, perhaps just paper made by that publisher. Signed by the composer on the last page with date; one suggests that this is a copy by the composer (lack of crossouts and suddenly rethought passages etc. as is typical of many first-thought holographs- unless like some composers Suolahti was quite good at doing that in his head for the most part and produced very clean first holographs too.)
