Scope and content

In this letter to "Sir Elgar", Anna expresses great appreciation of Elgar's music and especially his violin concerto which has helped her so much during her long and severe illness. She is very grateful and as she considers him a dear friend, she sends him the sketches which she wrote during her last illness. The original letter is dated 10 Nov 1925, and it is unclear when this photocopy was made. This copy appears to have been made by Worcestershire Record Office, and it can be surmised that at least some of the others are also copies from there.
