Scope and content

Sinding regrets that once more he must abandon visiting the Brodskys. He cannot stand the climate and must leave. Now the snow has come and made everything impossible for Sinding. He has resolved to go to Paris for a short time and then go on to Norway. The purpose of his stay in London was the completion of his violin concerto. The alterations which according to Brodsky's friend should be made, must be postponed until later. Sinding thanks Brodsky heartily for his letter, for the enclosed review and for the news about Novacek's quartet. Sinding cannot write any more: he has hardly slept for 8 days and is now like an electric machine. In a footnote Sinding gives the permanent address: Wilhelm Hausen, Musikverlag Gotlursgade 11 Copenhagen. Dated Thursday evening
