Once again we earnestly and insistently implore and beg Zhenya to write us more often and in greater detail, and in particular, to be sure to acknowledge immediately by return of post, if only by a few lines, receipt of our previous letters, and write about Boris’s reply and about the plan as regards the “announcement”. We are still waiting for that announcement—simply scandalous! And lastly: we earnestly advise you to publish the announcement as soon as possible. If Boris remains adamant, then do without him. Impatiently awaiting your reply.
