Scope and content

Nina thanks Adolph for his charming letter in which he describes the Brodskys' lives. Nina is delighted that Anna is getting better. She enquires if Barker is the only new member of the quartet. Maaskoff is Anna's favourite pupil. Nina is deep in the Hardanger fjord. The mighty chain of cliffs is covered in glaciers and snow. They climb up and wander in the valleys with waterfalls and flowers in the grass. She mentions happy memories of Edvard and their home but is glad that Edvard is no longer suffering. They will remain a few more weeks there and then go elsewhere in Norway and spend a few days in Bergen to put some flowers on Edvard's grave. At the end of August they hope to be in Denmark again. She gives a Norwegian address and Hotel Monopol, Kopenhagen. Dated 15 Jul 1923.
