Scope and content

Nina apologises for not writing but she has been travelling around Norway and had wanted to send a picture of Edvard's statue which is "just as he walked among us, simple and natural". The statue was unveiled on 4 September, the day of Grieg's death ten years ago. It was a great day of celebration with flowers and flags on all houses. At 6 o'clock there was dinner for 60 people and in the evening was a Grieg concert at the theatre. The Grieg fund now has much money and can be used to raise musical standards. Halvorsen's eldest daughter, Ase, has married a Russian whose possessions are in Moscow. Dated 28 Sep 1917.
