In Russian, to his third wife, Natalya Andreevna (née Manchenka, 1902-90), about the chaos going on at the State People's Home (Gosnardom) at Alexandrovsky Park, Leningrad ("A complete refurbishment will be realised next year, so I have to work from 10 to 7 just to get the most urgent things done"), on plans to travel with Angelina, for which reason he wants to receive his wages much earlier than usual: "[...] I am going to bed now, can hardly stand on my feet anymore. After work is done, one has to run around for two hours to find something to eat. My canteen has been closed, and all that's left are shabby bars [...]".
