Scope and content

Nina has been acting as an intermediary between the Brodskys and Mr. Benis whose letters have been failing to reach their destinations. Nina has written to Mr. Benis and received a card from him written on 17 November. She tries to put their anxiety about each other at rest. Nina and Tonny are on the Neergard's estate where everything is quiet and harmonious with woods, canals and swans but the papers bring news of all the wicked things each day. In a postscript Nina mentions that Ase Halvorsen Koenig "is more than happy" and they have promised Halvorsen not to return to Russia until after the war. Dated 21 Dec 1917.
