Ludwig van Beethoven - The “Immortal Beloved” Letters (1812)

These are Beethoven’s 5-part unsent love letters written in pencil to a woman, his “Immortal Beloved”, whose identity remains unknown, found in his estate by his friend Anton Schindler after his death.

Angel, I have just heard that the mail coach goes every day – and thus I must finish so that you may receive the letter immediately. – be patient – only through quiet contemplation of our existence can we achieve our purpose to live together – Be calm; for only by calmly considering our lives can we achieve our purpose of living together.- be calm - love me - today - yesterday - What yearning with tears for you - you - you my life – my everything - farewell - oh continue to love me - never misjudge the most faithful heart of your Beloved

L.

Ever thine.

Ever mine.

Ever ours.
