Scope and content

This letter was probably written early in 1892 or 1893, not long after the Brodskys had settled in the United States. Nina mentions the problems facing the proposed American trip; mainly Grieg's health. Nina is pleased that the Brodskys continue to get on well in the new world. Nina hints that there may be something between Anna's sister and Sinding and suggests that Sinding cannot keep to one wife any longer. She writes that she does not know if Sinding loves Frau Gade. Dr. Gade is a noble man and his wife also has many good qualities. The Griegs saw the villa where Miss Smyth and the Empress Eugenie stayed at Menton: they named the place Cap Smyth. Nina gives as their address C.F. Peters, Thalstrasse 10, Leipzig.
