Notes
-  Holograph letter.
-  The letter has been translated and published: Schiedermair I, 8; Anderson I, 82a; Bauer/Deutsch I, 164.
-  Hologarph letter written by Mozart to his sister, Nannerl. It was composed in Milan and dated March 3, 1770. The letter is part of the Gertrude Clarke Whittall Foundation Collection, and formerly was in the possession of the Wittgenstein family of Vienna. It is one of the earliest extant letters to his sister, who he addresses as "Cara Sorella Mia." The body of letter chronicles the experiences of the young composer in Milan, but it is the postscript that reveals Mozart the boy, who begs Nannerl to "Kiss mamma's hand for me 1000000000 [one billion] times."
