My dear Zosia and Yasik! Have you received my telegram and a postcard that I have sent after my release? It has been several days now that I have been resting, almost in the village, in Sokolniki, because the impressions and the fever of the first days of freedom and revolution were too powerful and my nerves, weakened by so many years of prison silence, could not withstand the pressure. Now, I am using the time in order to fill the gaps in my knowledge and to bring my thoughts in order. See more
I have fully plunged into my element.
I am still in solitary confinement with the same companion, and fairly content on the whole. I work at my machine for five hours every day. You don’t need to send me anything, and in any case, almost everything is forbidden except pork fat, sugar and bread, but we have all that here anyway. I am very grateful for the chocolate, grapes and sweets that Yasik wants to send me; I hope that at some time in the future we will eat them together.
