Scope and content

Olga has just received a letter from her sister Anna, the first sign of life [since the Brodskys were interned as prisoners of war in Austria at the outbreak of the Great War]. Olga reassures her sister that they are all well and continuing as before. Only nephews Lev and Vladimir are differently employed. Olga's son Leon, now reformed is still in Moscow where he is buying a house. Olga's husband Georg is now employed with grain. Olga has also written to Nina Grieg in Bergen. Olga is very relieved that Anna is walking much. Awful weather prevents Olga from going out walking. The letter is written in German and is dated 19 Oct/1 Nov 1914.
