Scope and content

Anna writes an enthusiastic letter of thanks to Lady Elgar after receiving the photograph of Sir Edward [see AB/744] that morning. Anna recalls the happy days in Rome [April 1908], but their days in Naples were spoiled by the poverty and misery. The Brodskys will be going to Russia in a month and will return in September. The Brodskys are looking forward to hearing Sir Edward's symphony and Anna hopes that the Elgars will come to hear it under Richter. The original is dated 1 Jul [c1908], and it is unclear when this photocopy was made.
