To Maximilian Voloshin, February 7, 1914, Moscow

Dear Maximilian Alexandrovich!
I started to write to you a few times but somehow nothing would come out of it. But this time whether it will turn out well or not, I neverthelss decided to send this letter by all means. I think that your article about me is wonderful. I re-read it several times and read it again as a separate true work. I am very glad you write about real things and believe me your keenness moves me.
