Scope and content

Gertrud Fridberg tells Anna Brodsky how much pleasure she has had reading her book (Recollections of a Russian home). Alooshta reminds Gertrud of the summer spent in Skelleflea in Sweden. Unfortunately her husband does not understand enough English to read it. However Gisa has enjoyed it very much. Gisela herself adds her own words of appreciation. She has been busy working for her state exams and has scarcely time for any non-scientific reading. She has heard from earliest childhood from her father about Anna and her husband. Fridberg himself adds a note to Adolph Brodsky: he has mentioned in an article that Brahms believed Die Meistersinger to be the best of Wagner's work. Friberg wonders if Brodsky, who knew Brahms, can provide any further information on the matter. The letter is in German and is dated 23 May 1907.
