Scope and content

Nina has been longing to hear from Anna but knows that the Brodskys are still her friends although she has heard nothing from them for a long time. Nina philosophises about being alone: but she has nothing to rue; love was all she had for Edvard. Antonie [Tony] and Nina have spent a few months in Kristiania, in exceptionally good accommodation. Nina has been giving lessons and feels she ought to keep up the tradition of Edvard's lieder. Nina has very few friends in Kristiania: both Nina and Edvard always felt Kristiania was very cold to them, but it is beautiful in winter with much snow and high skies. Frants Berger is there: he has given much help to Mr. Finck in America with a large biography of Grieg. Nina delights that Tony [Maaskoff] has become such a fine artist. Dated 7 Mar 1909.
