Mother dearest,

Greetings to you, Anyuta and Mitya from our Sunday excursion. Nadya and I are cycling. Meudon Forest is a good place and close by, 45 minutes from Paris.[2] I have received and answered Anyuta’s letter. A big hug from myself and Nadya.

V. U.


[1] The picture postcard of Meudon Forest was sent to Lenin’s mother who at that time was staying with Lenin’s brother Dmitry, a rural doctor in the village of Lipitino, near Mikhnevo Station, Serpukhov Uyezd, Moscow Gubernia.

[2] In her memoirs, Nadezhda Krupskaya wrote: “Meudon is a small town some nine kilometres from Paris. Thousands of Parisians go there on holidays in summer to spend their time in the open air. We often went there on weekdays, to cheer ourselves up and to race through the marvellous woods of Meudon on our bicycles.”
