Wilma Norman Neruda became the 2nd wife of Charles Hallé in 1888. This letter is written to a concert-manager in Holland. Wilma Neruda suggests a possible programme for her forth-coming tour. She offers the A minor concerto by Viotti or Spohr's 8th concerto, with as 2nd solo, the Adagio and Rondo from the E major concerto by Vieuxtemps; or, the Mendelssohn concerto, if Joachim has not already played it in Amsterdam, followed by the Adagio from Spohr's 9th concerto or Romance in F by Beethoven. She asks to be booked into the best hotel and will need a sitting-room and a large bedroom with 2 beds. Dated 23 Feb 1879.
