Scope and content

Pauline Elsner is looking forward to the return of Brodsky, Speelman and Hatton to perform in Dublin, thanks to Mr. Geoghegan. Elsner asks for Brodsky's help in selling old editions of the Beethoven, Haydn and Mozart quartets which belonged to her grandfather. There is also a big collection of valuable cello music: her father was a pupil of Romberg and his own father. She hopes that Brodsky may find a collector and expresses appreciation of Brodsky's kindness to fellow artistes. The letter is dated 4 Apr 1919.
