[Probably Glackens 103: "closing scene Gotter--Ternina" crossed out, described as "Another Aida--procession with papier-mache animals and fruits. Very loud and clear." This cylinder was found at the Mapleson Music Library in February 1982, in a Columbia container with a crossed-out snake for Götterdämmerung with Ternina, Jean De Reszke, and Damrosch conducting, and Mapleson notation: "Closing Scene." Glackens gives no date, but the speed roughly matches the cylinders firmly ascribed to this performance.]
