Scope and content

Edvard has been ill in bed with bronchitis and asthma. He is now slightly better and has taken a few steps out of the door but is very "unlustig" [not jolly] as Brahms said in his last winter in Vienna. Nina has little faith in doctors. Edvard has had dreadful nights but fortunately all this is over now, but will recur when Edvard is chilled. Nina rejoices that the Brodskys are in their new home [3 Laurel Mount, Bowdon] although their old one was very comfortable. The Griegs are delighted that Bjornson has won the Nobel prize and are not quite decided whether to go to the Bjornsons for Christmas. Nina sends warm Christmas wishes to the Brodskys. Dated 18 Dec 1903.
