Scope and content

Grieg has just received his honorary doctorate from Oxford but cannot leave England without a promise that the Brodskys will come to Troldhaugen, preferably in July and if not, then in August. Grieg will not be waiting for the reply since, on the day after tomorrow he goes early, via Dover, Calais, Cologne, Hamburg, to Kobenhagen. He has had bronchitis and hopes that he will have a rest from illness over the summer months. They must hope for good weather. Grieg will not be able to provide Tchaikovsky and Brahms. Dated 29 May 1906.
