This week, Mother dearest, I received Manyasha’s letter of May 1.
I have not yet received my books but I hope to get them soon. Nadezhda Konstantinovna made detailed arrangements for them in Minusinsk.
It is probably not worth while subscribing to a newspaper; I hope to get Syn Otechestva from Tesinskoye.
The weather here is still foul—wind and rain. Spring just can’t settle down.
Regards to all. Have I got the address right?
