String Quartets by Joseph Haydn (Hob. III)

The ms. copies of Op.64 No.6 all? mostly? have Allegro for the first movement where the published score (edit: some published scores- not the contemporary parts published by Bland above, and probably not the earliest published scores, either, but - I don't know!!...) has Allegretto, interestingly. Does the autograph survive? Did the composer authorize the change, if it was one (or was the change in the other direction and made in the ms. copies, all copies of some other source? This seems unlikely as they're geographically widespread?...) - Schissel
