We were all extremely glad to receive your telegram and later your postcard. Did you continue your journey comfortably? Wasn’t it too tiring? Please drop me a couple of lines about this when you have rested and have settled down a bit.
Anyuta’s photographs (the ones she sent, I mean) arrived in good time and in good condition.
There have been no changes here. We are all well. The weather here is surprisingly fine for autumn—it must be compensation for a bad summer. Nadya and I have often been out locally in search of “real countryside” and have found it.
I embrace you fondly, my dear, and send my very best regards to Manyasha and Anya.
 This refers to photographs of Lenin’s elder brother, Alexander Ulyanov, that his sister Anna sent him; she was afraid to carry them across the frontier because of the possibility of being arrested.
