Yesterday I sent you a letter containing the misprints in signature 14 and two addenda. I hope you have received them.
This morning I received clean proofs of signatures 10, 11 and 12 and the page proofs of signature 21.
I am sending the misprints that must be printed in the book in a special list of errata.
It is a great pity that I have to send the misprints in small doses (see P.S.); I am afraid that some of the separate pages containing lists of misprints may get lost. Perhaps you will paste them together as you receive them and give them to the printer all at once?
As far as money is concerned—please send it on to me all at once (I am now in need of money); it is best done through the bank, specifically, through the Crédit Lyonnais. To prevent the people here from charging too much for the exchange it is best to buy francs in Moscow and send the exact sum to the Crédit Lyonnais in Paris, Agence Z, Avenue d’Orléans, 19, addressed to Mr. W. Oulianoff, current account No. 6420.
This is the most convenient way. It is no use trusting to a messenger; by the method I have described you have only to keep the receipt, there is no need to send any cheques.
I hope, from the bottom of my heart, that Mother will soon manage to get out of Moscow. Mother absolutely must rest and take a holiday in the Crimea. Many, many kisses for her, regards to all.
P.S. I have now sent lists of misprints for all the 21 signatures—1-18 signatures of the clean proofs and 19–21 of the page proofs. Please check up whether you have all these lists of misprints and let us know. I will repeat them if any have been lost.
 There follows, in the original, a list of the misprints.—Ed.
