Description

    Rasputin Letter Signed, "Grigori", in pencil, one page, on 5.5" x 3.5" postcard, Tiumen, Siberia, June 19, 1907, to his wife, Praskovia Fyodorovna Dubrovina. Rasputin, dictating to another writer, here advises his wife not to dwell on her own troubles since self-pity leads to sin. Also, he reminds her that suffering brings salvation. Rasputin's signature is followed by a small cross. Evenly toned, one smoothed fold. With later storage envelope. Grigory Yefimovich Rasputin (1869 - 1916) was perhaps the most colorful character associated with the death throes of Imperial Russia. A self-styled monk reputed to have mysterious healing powers, Rasputin became an intimate of the Czarina Alexandra and exercised considerable influence at court until his assassination.
