By: V. G. Chertkov (Author)

So much misunderstanding, misrepresentation, partiality and personal prejudice has accumulated in connection with the last years and days of Leo Nikolaevitch Tolstoy slife, that before starting upon this first detailed account of his going away I find myself compelled, at the risk of wearying the readers patience, to begin with a somewhat lengthy introduction. Now that Tolstoy swife is dead, the chief obstacle to revealing the true causes of his going away from Yasnaya Polyana is removed. Like other friends of Leo Nikolaevitch, I have said nothing for ten years. During this time many people, some of them particularly deserving of confidence and respect, have asked me to publish all that I know about this event. As an instance I will quote a letter from Mrs. Mayo, a well-known English authoress and admirer of Tolstoy.2 1S ofya A ndreyevna Tolstoy, who died in November, 1919. In Appendix II, at the end of the present volume, I explain what attitude towards Sofya A ndreyevna I adopt in the present narrative. I sabella Fyvie Mayo.
