Scope and content

This letter has been signed Annadolph. Anna Brodsky feels much closer to the Griegs after receiving Edvard's letter the previous day. Anna has also suffered from erysipelas and warns Nina that she must be careful for weeks, nor is she ready for domesticity yet. The Brodskys have decided to come another time. When Grieg's letter arrived, Anna was alone at home and she read the letter to Adolph over the telephone as she wondered what he would think. After living together for twenty-five years, they often feel and think the same and Brodsky expressed exactly the same thoughts as Anna. Anna bemoans Russia's fate: the country is bleeding from all its wounds. In a postscript, Anna mentions that Adolph is still in Manchester where he has spent the night in order to make an early start: he works too much. The original letter is dated 2 Jun, c1905, and it is unclear when this photocopy was made.
