I beg you also, dear grandmother, buy me a complete collection of the latest edition of the works of Zhukovsky and also send here immediately. I would also ask for a total of Shakespeare, in anglinski, but I do not know, Can we find in St. Petersburg; recommend Ekim. Only, pozhalusta, somewhat quicker; if it will be soon, here finds me still.
Then, that you write to me about Mr. words. Kleynmihelya, I suppose, It does not mean, I refused his resignation, if I file; he just simply does not advise; and what I have to wait here?
