Two of my secretaries are going to see you in Riga:
1) Anna Petrovna Kizas and
2) Natalya Stepanovna Lepeshinskaya.
I have worked with both for several years. They are remarkably loyal. Working for me has been hard labour. No rest or holiday. They are quite tired out. They must be given a rest. Please, pay them their salary in advance (and give them more) and then don’t make them work. Give them a chance to rest, see the doctor and have some wholesome food.
