Scope and content

Nina Grieg is very sorry to hear that Adolph Brodsky has been very ill. Edvard now has rheumatism in both feet and for three weeks could scarcely walk from one chair to another. Now he is much better. He was invited to conduct his own works in Vienna but nothing will come of it. It is still winter and the weather is poison for rheumatism. Snow is still thick on the mountains and the trees are not yet opening their buds. Nina invites the Brodskys to Troldhaugen. She claims to be a stupid little housekeeper and despite her best intentions, things do not always go right. She implies that Anna is an efficient housekeeper. In a month Grieg will be going to England. Nina's parents and sisters will come to her but she finds life sad when Edvard is away. Edvard has been climbing mountains with his friend Frants Beyer. Nina sends greetings to Sinding and asks about his winter prospects with the Brodskys' help. Dated 9 Apr 1892.
