Scope and content

This letter is from Anna's sister, Olga Skadowsky. The letter has been written to Anna after the Brodskys' return to England in 1915 following their release from internment. Olga has just received Anna's first letter from Bowdon. She has already received letters from Basel, Lausanne, Paris and London. Olga thought of Anna on the 11th, her birthday and on the 30th, their wedding anniversary. Olga reports on the crops, now benefiting from a few days of rain, on her milkmaid and she is very anxious about Leon her son who is working too hard - he has not had a day's holiday for three years. Olga asks what Adolph is studying and inquires about Chausson's Poème. She reports that she will be having three weeks' holiday to study grammar and nineteenth century literature. She will travel by train to Odessa to bathe in the sea. Olga is keen to hear about the welcome for the Brodskys on their return to England. In French.
