I was very glad to hear from you. Your hand must have been very painful for a long time—your writing is still weak.
Here we feel much better than we did in Paris—our nerves are at rest and there is more literary work and less squabbling. I hope it will be easier for us to meet, too— as long as there is no war; I do not greatly believe there will be one.
I receive very occasional news from Gorky, who is now less unfriendly in his attitude towards us than he was.
How are Mark and Mitya?
Give Mother many, many kisses from me.
Here we are having wonderful autumn weather, and we go out a lot.
Material conditions are so far bearable but not very reliable.... If anything happens I will write to you.
All the best and excuse the hurry.
P.S. Y.V. and Nadya ask me to send their regards and kisses. Both are well.
