Maria Alexandrovna Ulyanova,
Cottage No. 3,
July 11, 1899
I am writing a few lines, Mother dearest, to tell you that we are all quite well. This week I received the books Manyasha wrote to me about (Labriola and Jules Guesde). Merci for them.
We have put off the journey to Minusinsk for a while. Perhaps we shall go for a short time this week. The weather here is rotten; it has been a bad summer, all wind and rain.
I have received a letter from Lyakhovsky; he has been working as a doctor, it seems, in Chita and thinks of going later to Sretensk, also as a doctor.
I still have not received the original of the Webbs’ book, although the writer promised it.
Y.V. and N.K. send regards.
