"This is a strange world into which I have come."

This was number 6 in a sequence of eight Russia letters. In the Autobiography, however, it became number 2 as the letters that Malleson wrote are not published there.

The "strange world" BR refers to is Petrograd, Soviet Russia, although the letter was not written there or on the date written on the letter. The letter was written after his return from Russia on 30 June 1920.

The number "6" was added in ink to this ts. carbon, which is paginated 3-4.

The original letter ended up in the possession of Ottoline Morrell. It is number 1564 in the numbered sequence of letters to her (document .001564, record 18771.)

There are three other transcriptions of this letter:
