Tras la muerte de Beethoven, en 1827, se encontraron entre sus papeles tres cartas de amor escritas un mismo día (por la mañana, tarde y noche), a una mujer de la que no se indicaba su nombre, y a la que el compositor se dirigía como "Mi amada inmortal": la primera comenzaba con las palabras "Mi ángel, mi todo, mi yo: sólo unas pocas palabras escritas a lápiz..." Parece que nunca fue enviada, aunque también podría tratarse de una copia. Aunque no se indica la fecha, por la indicación de estar escrita "un lunes 6 de julio" los historiadores dan la fecha de 1812 como más probable
