Maria Nikolaevna-28 April/11 May
This morning we are going for a walk, as it is warm. Valia Dolgorukov is still not allowed to see us. Greetings to others. I’m so sorry I was not able to say goodbye. You must be very sad to leave Tobolsk, such a pleasant house etc; I remember the cosy rooms and the garden. Do you play on the swing, or has the plank already broken? Papa and I kiss you lovingly my dears. May God keep you. I send greetings to everyone in the house. Best wishes and a safe journey, if you are already leaving.
