Well-respected fellow citizen,

I apologize that until now I was not able to give you my address. I got settled and, if you want to drop by I will be waiting for you either tomorrow, which is Saturday or on Monday at around 6 or 7pm. Here is my address: Rue Ducouedie, 34 Hotel, Chambre 20. It is approximately at the same place where I used to live before. [Info about Metro stops.]All the best, L. Svirskiy

Russian circle element

[This person was perhaps a love interest for Polya’s younger sister Nina. There is a triangular scrap of paper in Russian that translates as follows. 

“I met Svirsky, and he seems to be stupid but very handsome. Please write to me what did you talk about with him so I don’t get caught. If you want to, you can write a few words to him on a separate piece of paper. I kiss you. Your Nina”]
