Scope and content

Modest Tchaikovsky sends the Brodskys the not very successful photographs which are nonetheless very dear to him as a reminder of the happy day spent with Brodsky. Like Peter, Modest feels awkward in society and Brodsky is one of the very few people with whom Modest feels at home. Modest is thinking of going to Manchester next year to stay for a few days with Brodsky before returning to Rome. Modest hopes that Brodsky will be able to spend a few days at Peter's house when he travels to Russia. The previous day, Modest heard Thomson [possibly the Belgian violinist, Cesar Thomson?] but magnificent though he was, Modest did not forget Wednesday evening. Dated 28 Apr 1908. Included in this item is an English translation of the letter.
