Dear G. V.,
I have another request to make of you. Please drop a line to Quelch asking his assistance in a matter on which he has already been approached by a friend of mine (with a letter from Velika Dm.) and today by myself: ask him to do everything he possibly can and tell him it is very important. You may write to him in French. Such a letter would help me very much with the arrangements, which are well under way and need only to be completed.
Here, in case you need it, is his address: Mr. H. Quelch.
37 A. Clerkenwell Green. London E. C.
In the meantime you can write to me at Alexeyev’s address, he lives two steps away. I hope to be finally settled in a week.
P.S. Vel. Dm. is perfectly right: at first glance this London makes a foul impression!!
Is your compositor ready to come over here?
Where are Berg and Vel. Dm., and do you happen to know when the former is leaving?
I sent you the agrarian books with Vel. Dmitr. Did you get them?
