My dear soul, Polinka,

I am in a hurry to you with my whole heart and with my soul. It is 8:00 in the morning, and I am writing this letter. I am sitting at home for the fifth day in a row with a bandage on my cheek, and it is not allowing me to go to the city for the things I need to buy. I am crazy because of it. It just happened a few days before I leave. I think I can write not? No way. But I want to satisfy you, since I didn’t write anything yesterday, but my dear soul, I am begging you not to worry. Everything will be good and fine soon. You are going to laugh about it, Polinka. You can think it is only me who is not well. But don’t worry. Sonia isn’t well also. The thing is that last Sunday we went together for a walk. The evening was cool and cold and we did not wear much and caught cold. And now she has to sit at home for the whole week as well. Since we are sick passengers, we asked for cheaper tickets. I feel okay. If I didn’t have the swelling, then I can get a fake tooth. I am really sorry about this toothache. Please understand my little girl that I was suppose to leave on the 20th of May and now, because of that, I am afraid it is going to be a delay for two or three days. Otherwise, please be calm. Don’t worry. Everything is fine. I am not worried. Yesterday I applied at the office personally, and today at 2:00, if God allows, I am going to receive my passport, a passport in my own name. Yesterday I received your card as of the 24th and a letter with an attachment, which I am very happy about. Yes, my dear soul, your letters are touching me, but I cannot write anything about them, because soon I am going to be with you. I am very happy that you go to the theater often and that you go for a walk. And it would be wonderful if your health will be improving. I am going to ask about tobacco, if it’s not dangerous, then I’ll take it with me. If it’s too risky, then I won’t. I saw a dream last night. I am going to describe it to you. It is our first day together. In the evening, you are showing a bed to me where I am going to sleep. Since I was very tired, I fell asleep immediately, and you were standing beside me. Early in the morning, I wake up, and on the opposite side I can see your things in which I saw you before. And I saw a bed. I came up to it and saw you sleeping. I stood next to you watching you sleeping beautifully and breathing the air around you. Then I touch you with my lips. I kiss your forehead slightly so I don’t wake you up. And I did it many times until you woke up. And when you saw me sitting next to you, you screamed Arnoldushka, come to me. I came closer and then you gave me [something]. My God, I felt so calm when I felt hugging your neck and hugging you and kissing you. At that moment when I was very happy, I woke up. If only it could happen in real life, I would die. I felt the presence of the soul. I am sending this picture to the memory of that dream. I can’t write any more because I can’t see with my second eye. I answered all of your letters. I am going to receive my passport at 2:00 today, and I will report it to you. Be happy. All the best. Your Arnoldushka. And I kiss you until I see you again. Greetings to yours.
