Scope and content

Sinding replies belatedly to Anna Brodsky's letter. He expresses appreciation of the Brodskys' sympathy and interest in him. Sinding wonders if he will be able to go to Cherson in the winter. He has been angry with his librettist who has not yet finished his drama but promises it in 14 days. As a result, he has not begun any major work, but has written some small works, mainly songs, including a few Russian ones. He has also a new violin sonata in his head. In spite of his bad luck, he has become strong and healthy like a bull and is also sunburnt. He will leave Norway again with pleasure, and especially in one of the big ships which go to Odessa every 14 days. It would be lovely to see Frau Brodsky again in Cherson. However, Sinding must remain at home, probably until Christmas. Before then he will scarcely be ready. Dated 3 Jun 1889
