Scope and content

Nina writes to Anna about beautiful, peaceful unforgettable Bowdon and the happy time spent there with the Brodskys. She complains about the unpeaceful nature of life in this smallish town. The Norwegians are anxiously awaiting to hear of the death of Bjornson in Paris. A few days ago the artist Otto Sinding, brother of Christian, died in Munich and the Danish artist Krager [one of whose pictures hung where the Griegs used to play and sing] has also died. Nina is delighted that Tony Maaskoff has played so well. Henry Wood also spoke well of him. Nina asks how long the Brodskys will be spending in Russia. Dated 25 Nov 1909.
