I received your letter about the trip up the Volga and the Kama and your new address. I must give you a new address, too. This summer we have moved a long way from Paris—to Krakow. Almost in Russia! Even the Jews are like Russians and the Russian frontier is 8 versts away (the journey by train from Granice to here takes two hours, from Warsaw 9 hours), the women go barefoot and wear brightly-coloured clothes, exactly as in Russia. My address here is:
I wish you and Anyuta a good holiday and a pleasant journey up the Volga. The hot weather is beginning and it must be good to be on the river.
With regard to Manyasha—it is to be hoped that after what they told you they will not be able to hold her very long.
Regards to Mark!
Please send me Mitya’s address, my dear.
Getting settled here is taking up a lot of our time. For the summer we are living out of town, near a summer resort called “Salwator”. We cannot yet speak Polish. Many difficulties and much bother.
Y.V. is ill. Looks like pneumonia.
I embrace you fondly, my dear; give Anya my very best regards.
Y.V. and N.K. send regards and embrace you.
