I found these letters today, from 1881 whilst looking through some boxes of violin bits from years ago. They are from James Hardie, the Scottish maker, to his customer, Mr Broadfield, concerning the upcoming delivery of a violin made for Mr Broadfield, by Mr Hardie. A delight to read, he talks of the customer being astonished when it becomes 3 months old, and to be careful, as the varnish is not yet dry, that the violin will be lighter when it drys. The next tells of a mistake in shipping instructions. The third, is apparently in response to a letter from the customer about the varnish cracking, with advice and assurances. Wonderful violin history.
