Scope and content

Novacek replies to Brosdsky's invitation to him to recuperate in England. He declines because of the English weather and the sea crossing, much though he would love to come. Petri played the quartet in Dresden on the 14th of this month: it was well reviewed although Petri was not quite satisfied with his colleagues. Novacek wonders if Brodsky has received the quartet in manuscript. He would like to dedicate it to Herr von Skadowsky in appreciation of his hospitality towards Novacek and also on account of his great love of art. Dated 23 Feb 1898.
