[In the whole District of Soroki there were only two real farmers, Aleynikov and Yenevskaya. From the second I learnt something that you can't learn from books - hard work. The most surprising thing about her was her leftist viewpoint. Irina Alexandrovna Ynevskaya regarded herself as a Communist, and her children were all members of the Rumanian Young Communists League. The local members of the League would gather in her place.] 

After a delicious and sumptuous meal the whole League would gather around on a terrace intertwined with roses. There they disputed over the principles of Marxism while the maid Ksyunka was run off her feet, bringing them this and that special treat. It was hard to please those fussy children of landowners who so naively considered themselves to be Communists!
