Прошли 43 версты. Сильный мороз, но я в дохе еду отлично. Между прочим, починка сапог стоила 40 руб, торбазов 700 руб, варежек 400 руб. Село Курзон очень большое и старое, но овса мы не нашли.


We have gone 43 versts. It is freezing, but I am travelling very comfortably in my fur coat. Incidentally, it cost 40 rubles to repair my boots, 700 to repair my fur-lined boots, and 400 to repair my mittens. The village of Kurzon is very big and old, but we could not find any oats.
