Scope and content

Anna is anxious at not hearing from Nina and asks for just a little letter as she expects Nina has guests at Troldhaugen. Anna has Nina's photograph in front of her as she writes. Anna has been very upset to read the correspondence between the Herzogenbergs and Brahms [in two volumes, edited by Max Kalbeck.]. Anna has always admired Frau von Herzogenberg and she has been very disturbed to read narrow-minded and unjust letters about Adolph from Frau von Herzogenberg to Brahms who had shown warmth and interest in Adolph. She attempted to put Brahms against Adolph. Anna feels rather let down. This letter has been signed Annadolph. The original is dated 12 Jul 1911, and it is unclear when this photocopy was made.
