Grieg instructs his publisher to reroute a shipment:

"Should the chest with the bust not have been sent already, I am asking you to be so kind to send it not to Copenhagen but to Bergen, Norway (Rabe's Music Store)." Together with a note of receipt in Hinrichsen's hand, dated February 18.

Slightly worn and browned; horizontal crease to upper portion.

Henri Hinrichsen (1868-1942) worked for the C.F. Peters publishing company in Leipzig from 1891 and became its sole owner in 1900. Grieg published all his music through Peters and was a close friend of the Hinrichsen family. The Hinrichsens generously supported Grieg's widow Nina until her death in 1935. Item #26834
