Scope and content

Ada Speelman writes to Brodsky in sorrow and gratitude for his help (Simon died in 1920). She is displeased with Forsyth and the Pier Company. Simon had also been hurt after his wife had written to Mr. Forsyth to say that he was too ill to fulfil his Hallé engagements but received no reply. Ada feels that Simon has been unappreciated during his 50 years in Manchester. Ada appreciates Brodsky's and Mr. Hatton's offer to settle with Forsyth but she would rather deal with it herself. The letter is dated 29 Jun.
