Accomplishment of the Mission. Letter of Pëtr Vasil’evich to the Doukhobors. Doukhobors’ Refusal of Military Service. Imprisonment of Vasiliǐ Verigin and Vereshchagin
Vasiliı Grigor’evich Vereshchagin and my brother Vasiliı Vasil’evich returned home from the trip safely. All the Doukhobors waited for them impatiently. When they arrived, there were big conventions and meetings where they spoke in detail about their trip, spoke about the health and well-being of Pëtr Vasil’evich and explained in detail why he was being transferred for such a long distance and to such a remote place as Obdorsk.
