Anna Brodsky
Letter
1906
Some more cross-writing from our favourite scribbler Nina Grieg, to Anna Brodsky (Royal Manchester College of Music).
This one is full of lovely gossip, including a nod to King Haakon VII of Norway who, it turns out, was a really cool dude (en.wikipedia.org/...)

Nina is anxious to tell Anna how deeply she feels for Anna's fatherland and wishes Anna would persuade her sister [presumably Olga] to move to England but Nina realises that Olga's views will be higher than her own personal safety. The Norwegians have also had a trying time but now they are free and they are pleased with their king and queen, although the latter is "a little shy and English stiff". Nina hopes that the plans to meet the Brodskys will come to pass. The Griegs are enjoying the biography of Tchaikovsky and finding it very touching.
