Scope and content

This picture postcard which Elgar sent to his daughter is of the Brodsky Quartet [Brodsky, Rawdon Briggs, Speelman and Fuchs]. The postcard is addressed to Miss Carice Elgar, Craeg Lea, Malvern. Elgar has written on the picture side of this postcard: Our best quartet and signed E.E.. He writes that the overture is just done and [indecipherable] is ringing in everybodies' ears. He adds a couple of bars of "In the South". The original is dated 9 Mar 1904, and it is unclear when this photocopy was made. Stamped on the back of each folio is: ‘Property of The Elgar Foundation, Broadheath, Worcester. Not to be reproduced without permission’.
