Scope and content

Nina smiles when she hears that Anna keeps all her old letters to read them through again: Nina considers them to be unworthy of such attention. Nina has been delighted to hear the Brodsky Quartet with three other members, in Kopenhagen but regrets that Anna was not there, and recalls Novacek and his viola. The electric light baths in Kopenhagen proved to be too strong for Edvard and then they tried a sanatorium on the Danish coast where he improved sufficiently to undertake the journey. A good friend, Senator Nearius from Finland accompanied them and was a great help to Nina when Edvard took ill in Valdres. He also accompanied the Griegs to Troldhaugen and remained with them for 5-6 days - a good guest. Nina's sister-in-law, Elisabeth Grieg, arrived the day Nina wrote this letter and next they expect the Röntgens and Percy Grainger. Nina ends with best wishes to the Brodskys for the summer and enquires about relatives and the children, Tony and Alfi [Anton Maaskoff and Alfred Barker]. Dated 12 Jul 1907.
