Scope and content

In this letter Nina Grieg mentions the Leeds Festival dates 9, 10, 11, 12 October on one of which days Edvard would play. This would date the incomplete letter as some time early in 1907. The Griegs are still living in a hotel which suggests that they have not yet moved out of winter quarters in Denmark. Edvard is not very well: he has an eternal cough and a pain in his side. He has a work room in the hotel so that he can be undisturbed. Nina recounts that Rolf Halvorsen is ill in hospital, outside which Annie comes to stand daily to speak with him. The Griegs received a card from Ninatschka at the New Year but they could not reply as she gave no address. Nina mentions the festival in Leeds 9-12 October and Anna has invited the Griegs to visit them then: Nina is delighted. [Edvard's death prevented these events.]. Anna has written about Toni [Anton Maaskoff] who provides a good example for Alfi [Alfred Barker]. Nina then mentions the Halvorsens who are ill with influenza which is raging in the town [This further mention of the Halvorsens suggests that these two sheets may not belong to the same letter.]
