Scope and content

This is a rather sentimental letter from Nina Grieg before embarking the following day. She is very touched that Brodsky himself has written to her and is delighted with the photographs, on one of which is dear little Porcupine and sweet little Jimmy [the former was Anna's little dog; the latter a maid?]. Nina heard Busoni play the Mozart G minor Concerto and recommends that Anna should hear him again. Percy Grainger has been very kind and played her most beautiful music including some new. Nina has visited the Woods and has revised her opinion of Mrs. Wood, who is very warm and also a Russian. Dated 31 Oct 1909.
