Scope and content

The letter is written on the back of the printed announcement of the engagement of Maria Richter, daughter of Richard and Marie [née Richter] Richter, to Kurt Dehmel. Marie Richter is very upset to have learned from her son-in-law, Richard Richter that Anna was suffering and is not yet quite recovered. Marie is often at Laurel Mount in her thoughts and heart and recalls how lovely it was in Bowdon with Hans. To find peace near him, Marie returns each year to Bayreuth. Marie is rather dispirited and finds consolation and hope in memories. Ludovika is looking after her. Marie has even let Edgar have her piano, but yesterday Daniela Bulow [Thode] played Beethoven's Waldstein sonata which awoke sad memories. Marie's little grand-daughter Maria has become engaged and will get married in a year. Marie sends the Brodskys the engagement announcement and hopes that even an atom of their marital happiness will flow on to them. Dated 22 Nov 1922.
