Scope and content

Nina Grieg thanks Anna Brodsky for her last two letters and is glad that everything is in order: the Brodsky Quartet plays and Brodsky and Edvard play the sonata, probably the G major, together. [These plans are for a forthcoming concert]. Nina cannot say how much she is looking forward to being with the Brodskys in Leeds [Edvard had promised to take part in the Leeds Music Festival to be held in Septmber 1907]. The Griegs have received a kind invitation from Mrs. Briggs [mother of Christopher Rawdon Briggs, second violin in the Brodsky Quartet] to stay at her house where it will be peaceful: there will be no company. Nina asks Anna about the Briggs family; she knows that Mrs. Briggs was recently widowed. Edvard is better. They remained so long in Skodsborg to consolidate the cure. The "Lichtbaderkur" [electric light baths cure] was too strong and Edvard was getting worse and worse in Kopenhagen. The sun bathing, hot and cold water and massage have helped Edvard: he can now sleep and is much calmer. Nina believes that Tony [Anton Maaskoff] has played splendidly and sends greetings to him and to Alfy [Alfred Barker]. Nina adds that it was wonderful that Anna can speak and move hearts about her poor fatherland. Dated 10 Jun 1907.
