My dear Lyubochka,
I haven't received your postcards in a while. Had it not been for Oksana's message, that you're in Evpatoria and everything is well, I would have been very worried. It's autumn here, I'm working a lot, despite my very sour mood. See more
I'm worried for my loved ones, how dire will the Petrograd winter be on them? I hope to God that we will defeat Germans soon enough! Soon I'll tell you about my work, my paintings. I miss you, Andrey and Marina.
Warm regards and kisses. May God keep you safe!
Dearest Lyubochka, how good it would be if we could beat the Germans as soon as possible—we could see each other again, and you and the children could get a bit of sun somewhere in the south of France or in Italy. I dream only of this. I’ve been following the Russian newspapers closely. Who has been sending me Russkoe Slovo? Stay healthy, all of you. Loving kisses to you and the children.
