Anna Ilyinichna Yelizarova,
Boldyrev’s House, Apt. 30,
Obolensky Street, 5/7,
March 2, 1909
Your letter and Mitya’s have reached me here—many thanks for them. I wrote to you from Paris that the last proofs were excellent. If Mother is better and you are not too tired I shall not, of course, insist that you pass on the proofs to someone else. But are you not too worn out? I was glad to learn from Mitya’s letter that Mother is better! At last—she must have had a rough time. Please send proofs as before, not only the page proofs, but the galley proofs as well (it does not matter if I correct them an extra time; the fewer mistakes the better). Please send the printed signatures at once to Paris, too.
I am taking a holiday in Nice. The place is wonderful— sunny, warm, dry and a southern sea. I am returning to Paris in a few days.
I embrace Mother fondly and send best regards to all.
