I have received your postcard—merci. What a difference between your weather and ours here! Here it is already spring—there has been no snow for a long time, it is warm, we do not wear galoshes and the sun is unusually bright for these parts. We cannot believe that we are in “wet” Krakow. It is a pity that you and Manyasha have to live in a nasty little town!... I have been to Paris and not to London and have had quite a good trip. Paris is a very unsuitable town for a man of modest means to live in, and very tiring. But there is no better and more lively town to stay in for a short time, just for a visit, for an outing. It made a good change.
In summer we shall probably go to Poronin again.
I embrace you fondly, my dear, and hope you keep well. Best regards to Manyasha.
P.S. Nadya and Y.V. also send many kisses.
