Scope and content

Anna expresses her delight at being in Russia, which has been going backwards and not forwards in recent years. Everyone is discontent and this may bring all classes together. Anna is very happy to see Olga daily. Olga has arranged accommodation for the Brodskys: a little villa with high rooms and a distant view of the Black Sea and little firs growing in front of the house. Olga has hired a cook for them. The previous day, they were in Odessa where they met two of their sisters: there were four sisters, two nephews and Adolph when Olga's Leo, "der stumme Fisch", [the silent fish] came quite unexpectedly from Moscow for a few days. Adolph took everyone to a cafe and treated them to chocolate. The Brodskys will be in Odessa until 27 August when they go to Vienna and then straight home. In a postscript, Anna mentions that Ninotshka expects a baby in a few weeks. She signs the letter Annadolph Brodsky. The original is dated 1/14 Aug 1912, and it is unclear when this photocopy was made.
