Misfiled by LoC as "Venture a terre"- first word however is Ventre, French for Stomach, Ventre à terre, stomach to the ground, full speed ahead, not the English word Venture. First page of score has a different dedication (to Miss Nettie E. Corwin, Newburgh, N.Y.) Title page dedicated to Anna Mehliq.
