Dear Maria Alexandrovna,

I very much want to write you a few lines and to give you and Anya many kisses. Many thanks to Anya for the trouble she is taking; today I received the Zhurnal Zhurnalov and about a week ago a whole pile of the latest educational publications. I was terribly in need of them. Thanks, many, many thanks. Today or tomorrow I shall write her a long letter. How is Mafiyasha getting on? Volodya is all the time expecting letters from her. Do you know her address?

Again many kisses,
