Scope and content

Nina regrets that Anna has not received the letters written in October and November [see AB/813 written on 8 October 1905]. Nina is anxious to tell Anna how deeply she feels for Anna's fatherland and wishes Anna would persuade her sister [presumably Olga] to move to England but Nina realises that Olga's views will be higher than her own personal safety. The Norwegians have also had a trying time but now they are free and they are pleaed with their king and queen, although the latter is "a little shy and English stiff". Nina hopes that the plans to meet the Brodskys will come to pass. The Griegs are enjoying the biography of Tchaikovsky and finding it very touching. Dated 25 Jan 1906.
