Dearest Charles,

I found a box of this paper at the back of a bureau so I must write to you as I am mourning for my lost innocence. It never looked like living. The doctors despaired of it from the start. Soon I am off to Venice to stay with my papa in his palace of sin. I wish you were coming. I wish you were here. I am never quite alone. Members of my family keep turning up and collecting luggage and going away again but the white raspberries are ripe. I have a good mind not to take Aloysius to Venice. I don’t want him to meet a lot of horrid Italian bears and pick up bad habits.

Love or what you will. S.

anonymous asked:

Papa,” came a soft, sweet voice. “Come on, Papa!”

Russo was being led by the hand through a garden. The sky was a dull grey, the trees around them bright green and blooming. He couldn’t make out the face of the child in front of him, leading him and giggling as he toddled across the stone walkway.

All Russo knew inherently was that this boy was his. And that this boy should be dead.

I was in NC recently at my family’s beach house. It’s a typical old beach house, no frills here. The walls are all either ply-wood and battens, or straight up tongue-and-groove planks. There is no air conditioning, and everything is wet with ocean spray. This year we had four generations of family, 25 people in all, staying. This is a sketch of my room. Some of my cousins got together and gave all of the bed rooms names a few years ago. This one is called “Patriot’s Point” on account of its red, white and blue scheme.

A letter to her little brother Aleksei (Alexei), from 1916:

My darling Aleksei,

It is very lonely here without you and Papa. It was so nice to visit you in Mogelev! The weather is warm. We’re sitting on the balcony. Just came back with Maria and Shvibz from the Big Palace. Tell Papa that Sister Movutsina has crossed eyes. Very strange. There are many wounded. Some old colonel from Siberia, who is your Godfather, sent you his regards and wished you health, etc. Of course I fogot his last name. Tell V.N. that there are many wounded. Forty eight. Yesterday they brought eleven more people and they’re all layng down. They’re from near Riga, the Siberian Regiments. Everyone is all right. All keep asking about you and want to see you. Please thank P.V.P for his letter and tell him he can write again.

Well, good-bye my darling Aleksei. May the Lord protect you all. I kiss you many, many times. I hug you mentally and love you very, very much.

Your Tatiana

I embrace you.
