Scope and content

Nina thanks Anna for her last letter. Röntgen has already read the corrections to the quartet pieces and sent them back to Hinrichsen: they will soon be published. When Nina receives them from Hinrichsen, she will immediately send the Brodskys a copy. Nina asks if Anna has heard the name Emil Horneman. He was an outstanding Danish composer, a friend of Edvard's who had been a student with him at the Leipzig Conservatoire. He died two years ago. He wrote an opera called Aladdin which was produced in Kopenhagen when Dr. Richter was there. Horneman's widow is now in financial straits and has come to Nina with the request that she write to Dr. Richter to ask for a few good words about the opera. Nina wonders if she would receive a reply from Richter and wants Anna to hurry. It is now half a year since Edward died and Nina feels more and more wretched but her heart warms when she thinks that dear Brodsky was there and saw him. Nina mentions that Siloti is at the Brodskys and adds that she has received a beautiful photograph of Tchaikovsky from Anna's niece. Dated 4 Mar 1908.
