Scope and content

Nina is very impressed that Anna has been able to give a lecture on Tolstoy, the great idealist of her fatherland. For a few weeks a pianist, Ignacy Friedman, [Polish pianist and composer, 1882-1948] with an insurpassable technique, was here and Nina overheard him remark that Brodsky was going to Berlin to a post he has been offered. Later Nina questioned him alone and received the impression that he was not quite so sure of his facts. Nina asks Anna to write to her about it. She often thinks of "the remarkable" Jimmy, of Bowdon , of the Richters and of the unforgettable time at the Brodskys' "cosy house". Nina and her sister Antonie intend to remain in Kopenhagen until the middle of April, then go to Kristiania and after a fortnight, go on to Bergen and spend as long as possible at Troldhaugen in the summmer. She has heard that Olga Neruda wanted to have her college post back. Dated 12 Feb 1911.
