I have received letters from Manyasha and Mitya, Mother dearest, informing me that you have received my telegram and have taken a firm decision not to make the journey. Are you better now? When (and where) is Manyasha leaving? When are you moving to a new apartment or to Moscow? I am sending you today a registered package with a book I should have returned long ago. I apologise for the delay. Many kisses for you and regards to all.
Nadya and Y.V. send regards.
 This refers to a proposed trip to Shushenskoye.—Ed.
