Letter to Adolph Brodsky from violinist Ivor Bernhoff, who lost his hearing in the war

A Letter from violinist Ivor Bernhoff to Royal Manchester College of Music Principal Adolph Brodsky, dated 1923. 

Bernhoff thanks Brodsky for a gift of money which has enabled him to procure meat, eggs, butter and milk which he has not tasted for months. He can no longer play the violin as he has almost lost his hearing through lack of food during the war.
