Scope and content

Nina is delighted to have Anna's letter and to know that they are well and safe. The Brodskys are more optimistic about the peace settlements than Nina who is rather negative about world peace. Nina wishes Russia could be rid of the Bolsheviks. Now for Nina's bad news: she must sell Troldhaugen which she can no longer afford and which will be a burden from her shoulders. They must take Edvard's ashes from the mountain and find some beautiful place for them. In a postscript, Nina mentions that Rachmaninov is now in America with his whole family. Dated 11 Dec 1918.
