It is quite a while since I had news of you. Is Mother keeping well? Have you received the letter I sent immediately on receiving the “goodies”?
It seems that the amnesty did not affect the exiles in Vologda at all....
Is there any news from Mitya or Mark in their new places?
Do you know the address of Krumbügel—he published my book on philosophy? Is it possible to get hold of him (if you tell me how to find him I can probably get an acquaintance in Moscow to do it) and find out whether there are any unsold copies of the book left? We could now probably find another means of disposing of them and could come to an agreement on the subject with the publisher.
All the best, kiss Mother for me.
P.S. Our address is now Lubomirskiego No. 49 (and not 47).
 It was the general rule to reduce the term of exile by one-third in the event of an amnesty, but only for those exiles who received a favourable report from the local administration. Most of the Vologda exiles were amnestied.
