Grieg has arrived in London alone and replies to Anna on behalf of his wife. Before leaving Bergen, Nina had a kidney attack and the Kobenhagen doctor would not allow her to travel on any account. Edvard has never felt such loneliness and abandonment since his childhood. Grieg intends to arrive on the 7th for the concert in Manchester on the 9th. He will be coming from Liverpool where he has business on the 6th. In these circumstances Grieg looks forward to seeing his dear friends. Dated 22 Oct 1897.
