Nina is delighted to have heard from Anna and appreciates the invitation to visit the Brodskys for a third time. Nina hints at Tchaikovsky's homosexuality. In Kopenhagen he has many warm and charmed followers. He is often played at the King's Theatre and "Onegin" has been promised for this winter. "Peer Gynt" continues to full houses. 18-19 May they will go to Kristiania, stay there for 5-6 days to see the sisters-in-law and then, for the sixth time since Edvard's death, will visit the old home. In a postscript, Nina mentions Anna's dear sister [Olga Picard, née Skadowsky] and how pleasant that she spent the Easter days with her "stummen Fisch" [her son, Leon Picard]. Dated 9 May 1913.
