Jelka Rosen - 1899

from Delius: A Life in Letters 1862-1908, pages 154-155:

I am thinking all the time of your music - It is so beautiful and I am so intensely happy that I can understand and love it so well. I can't express, what I feel - you must try to guess it - A sort of fresh joy and courage through it and for it. Art and nature are what is fine - the rest seems so small now. / Life is beautiful like that - I think I owe all this to you, my best friend -
