Scope and content

Anna opens her letter with the hope that Nina has now recovered from her illness. A letter from Nina is always a special joy. In every room the Brodskys have a photograph of Nina, Grieg, or of them both. Anna looks forward to Nina and Tonny coming in October. Their plans for the summer are still unclear. They have not seen Olga for three years: they love her so much and want to see her since they are getting older and older. Adolph is remarkably fresh and cheerful and nobody would imagine he is 61. Concerts, meetings etc. are now over until October. Anna asks Nina to send a postcard of Grieg to her sister, Frau Olga. Nina may think the Brodskys are fine people, but they are nothing in comparison with Olga who is a wonderful, generous remarkable human being. The original is dated 9 May 1912, and it is unclear when the photocopy was made.
