Scope and content

Atkinson wonders if Brodsky remembers him: they used to sing and play together. For many years he has been teaching the Italian method of voice production and German, French, Italian, Russian and English classic songs. He has always intended to return to his native city Manchester. He would like to come to Manchester every week and if Brodsky could find him 10 pupils, he would come regularly. His fees would be 11 guineas for a course of lessons. Atkinson signs himself Principal of the Battistine Vocal Academy. The letter is dated 10 Jan 1924.
