In Russian, to his third wife, Natalja, regarding the financial straits bothering him, and outrageously high prices for a dacha: "[...] I expected to hand off my work on April 20, or 21, get my money on the 22th, but I haven't received anything up till now, all my money is spent, Moscow is suffering from hunger, a meal in a restaurant adds up to 6 rubles. By trying to get a cheaper one for 3 rubles 50 kopeks, I got sick with an upset stomach which lasted almost two days. Another story: My left leg hurts badly, the bones hurt so much that I can not lie on the left side [...] All food rationing cards were withdrawn from housewives in Moscow. All of them were replaced, which, actually, is not that bad since there is nothing to buy at all [...]" (transl.). - Some paper loss to the lower left border, not touching text.
