  Copy of Mr. A. W. Dassler's letter of January 23, 1954 to Mrs. Adolph Stoelting

  "When I joined the Maennerchor in the fall of 1885, they met at Hans
Greve's Tavern, across 
from the C.J. Meiselwitz building. Willie Heins was director at the time
and soon after left for 
Wittenberg, and I was chosen in his place. I don't know how old the organization
was at the 
time, but I believe it was very young. To the best of my recollection, its
membership consisted 
at the time of Willie, Carl and Rudolph Heins, Emil Hanske, Edmund Hanske,
Gustav Duecker, 
William and Carl Greve and a few more, unknown to me now. Soon after our
list of members grew.
