Scope and content

Nina thanks Anna for her last greeting with the card from Leipzig and for the little "Evening Prayer" which she asks if Anna has written correctly. Nina then quotes from a poem translated into German which bears the same sentiments. The journey was really fine for the time of year: a calm sea and a prosperous voyage. They had intended to go straight to Kopenhagen but their friends had not wanted them to go. Nina speaks of Bowdon and Anna's little dog. She mentions that the Brodsky quartet will be playing the entire quartet [Grieg's] on 1 December and wishes she could be in the audience. In a postscript Nina sends greetings to "die kleine Kantorowitsch" [Helen Kantorowitsch]. Dated 6 Nov 1909.
