Scope and content

Anna thanks Edvard Grieg for the book with his kind inscription on the title page and his thoughts of their native land. Anna mentions the horrors of the revolution and worries about her sister Olga, who is in Odessa, while her brother and the rest are in Cherson. Weeks often pass without any sign of life and they rarely receive letters from the Brodskys. Anna has tried to persuade her sister Olga to come to them but so far, without success. The original is dated 6 Jan, c1906, and it is unclear when this photocopy was made.
