Schiller explained the modest success of his play 'Fiesco', with total disregard to its shortcomings, to Reinwald thus in a letter, "republican sense of liberty has no meaning in this country; in the veins of the Palatinates, there flows no Roman blood."
According to tradition, Schiller is reported as having begun to write his play 'Kabale und Liebe' during his two-week incarceration in 1782.
On the occasion of Schiller's becoming acquainted with Charlotte von Kalb and her husband on May 9th, Schiller immediately removed the role of the ridiculous court servant Kalb from this night's performance of the play.
The four Leipzig friends who sent Schiller their beautiful gift in June were the sisters Dorothea and Minna Stock, Minnas fiance‚ Christian Gottfried Koerner and their mutual friend Ludwig Ferdinand Huber.
Schiller's acceptance speech held on June 26 at the 'German Society' was not included into the collection of the writings of the Society. Schiller would later publish it as an essay titled 'Was kann eine gut stehende Schaubuehne eigentlich wirken?' (What impact can a well- equipped stage have?) in his mid-March 1785 edition of his first issue of his new periodical 'Rheinische Thalia', and in May, 1802, again revised, it appeared in Schiller's 'Kleineren prosaischen Schriften' under the title 'Die Schaubuehne als eine moralische Anstalt betrachtet'(the stage, seen as a moral institution).
Schiller's fall work on his play 'Don Carlos' had him re-write the first act of this play from prose into iambic verses.
When Schiller published the poem 'Freigeisterei der Leidenschaft' in Leipzig in 1788, his editor requested of him a comment that the work did not portray the passions of an actual person but those of a fictional young man and that they did not constitute the personal opinion of the writer.
Only as late as on December 7th did Schiller answer the letter from Leipzig with which he had received the beautiful gifts from his Saxon admirers. This contact would lead to a change of venue for Schiller in 1785.
