Piotr discusses potentially meeting a friend (the name is difficult to read but something like Alven) of Westermarck's. Specifically Sophie would love to receive this friend but she has returned ill from her lecture tour. She is also now busy with the bazaar for the Russian Exiles Fund. Both Kropotkin's are going to Brighton soon but are unsure yet of the address.

Kropotkin expresses his sympathy for the ill Westermarck, says Sophie has been ill for months and that the only remedy is to go south to somewhere like Brighton. They discuss meeting but Piotr warns Westermarck Sophie will not be there as she is going to Belgium for 8-10 days but she hopes to see you on her return.

Thank you for the kind invitation, it would be a pleasure for me to come on June 21st and to spend the evening in you and our common friends company. Thanks for coming last sunday with your friend, it was so nice.

I am still ill and write as much as I can. Thanks for the interest you took in the matter about Tcherniak (this will be Yakov, the anarchist who caused uproar in 1906 when Russia demanded extradition from Sweden). Our work has not been in vain as extradition has been refused. Discusses Swedish newspapers involvement in the campaign against the extradition also. Our friend Nys wrote an 'extremely good consultation' about the subject. I am ordered to spend all day indoors and part of it in bed. 'So sad!' Sasha is studying Greek history and philosophy at the University College.
