Scope and content

The Griegs are yearning to hear from the Brodskys and are wondering if they have received the letter and photograph. The Griegs think and speak daily of the happy all-too-short time spent chez the Brodskys. Grieg sends greetings to the cat, to Fraulein Neruda and Dayas. They send Christmas greetings but are not celebrating the festive season as they are with dear friends [Julius Röntgen, whose father, Engelbert died in Leipzig on 12 December 1897]. Dated 25 Dec 1897.
