Mozart in the Viennese Council of War

Mozart's name ("Mozard Capellmeister") appearing on 21 October 1786 in the protocol of the k.k. Hofkriegsrat (of all places). Mozart stood bail for his friend Franz Jacob Freystädtler, who was accused of having stolen a piano by the Bavarian captain David Haißer. In the last fifteen years nobody has discovered more handwritten Mozart documents from the composer's lifetime than yours truly.
