Scope and content

This letter was copied in the section "Kleines Feuilleton". It was sent to Frankfurter Zeitung by a friend of the newspaper and translated from French into German. Above the copy of the letter from Grieg to Colonne is a paragraph of explanation. The concert manager had invited Grieg to conduct one of the Colonne Concerts in Paris. Grieg thanks Colonne for his invitation to conduct one of the Colonne Concerts in Paris but regrets that after the outcome of the Dreyfus Affair he cannot come to France. Like all foreigners he is angry at how justice has been handled in France.
