Grieg replies to Brodsky's letter in which Brodsky announces that he is not coming to Norway. Grieg tried to telegraph him that Nina was better and to come; the Eldorado would be going from Newcastle to Bergen that evening. However the address in Bowdon was not a telegraph address and Grieg could not remember the telegraph office in Manchester. In the meantime, Grieg has caught a chill and had to go to bed. Brodsky has passed on an invitation to Grieg to go to Odessa. This Grieg declines mainly on grounds of health but he also feels that the political situation is rather dubious. Besides, the country and language are unknown to him. Grieg has received an invitation to conduct the Warsaw Philharmonic in Helsingfors [Helsinki] in September. Although the journey is much shorter and one can manage with Swedish and German, he will decline because of health considerations. Were he healthy enough, he would go from Helsingfors to Petersburg and Moscow to fulfil engagements there and then go on to Odessa. Grieg is completely worn out after writing this letter. Nina adds a note of regret. Dated 12 Jun 1905.
