So you see the dilemma. Nobody in their right mind would just walk away
and toss the disc in the trash just because it might be someone else. It
is imperative to find out who this Rudolf Steiner is. But I think you are
correct, a second disc would lead me to believe there was another Rudolf
Steiner out there. One clipping from a German music periodical from that
time is being translated for me and it might make a conclusion there was
another Rudolf Steiner.
