Scope and content

Grieg thanks Brodsky for inviting them. He may have to return home prestissimo because of the coronation in Drontheim, but that is unlikely since he has refused to write a cantata for the event. He will be travelling to Warsaw at the end of March and will be well-paid. Each evening Grieg reads to Nina from Tchaikovsky's Life and Letters. Grieg recognises in Tchaikovsky's melancholic temperament many similarities to his own. Grieg looks forward to the ray of sun, seeing the Brodskys in May. Dated 25 Jan 1906.
