Scope and content

Letter is dated 3 Sep 1923. Bachmann sends Brodsky a letter from Bernhoff [see AB/322L] to whom Bachmann has just sent millions of marks now worth less than the paper on which they are printed. He sympathises with the innocents who have suffered at the hands of William and his awful son, protected by Wilhelmina, weighing 110 kilos. In a postscript Bachmann asks if Brodsky has received his 3rd concerto. In French.
