SOLZHENITSYN TO HIS DENTIST. In translation: "I cannot come myself and so I am sending this written request via my good friend. Some time ago you kindly provided a medical service for me (injections) as an outpatient. It was about one-and-a-half years ago, and now my 'spring gums' require such treatment again. If it is possible that you could do this for me again, could you please give my friend (who brought you this letter) about 15 syringes. Thank you in advance for your help and I will not be disappointed if you are unable to comply with my request."
