Arrival in England. Meeting the Chertkovs

  • Grigoriǐ Vasil’evich Verigin


On September 10, we arrived in the town of Goole, the first English town we saw. We went downtown and bought some food and fruit. Everything was very expensive. We spent the night on the ship and at 9 am, we left to visit the Chertkovs by railway. We got their address in Batum from Stephens, the English consul. Unfortunately, this turned out to be their old address, and over a year ago, they had moved 250 miles away. We went to their old address and people explained this to us. We had to stay overnight there, and in the morning at 8 am, one Englishman took us to the railway station to put us on the train to the Chertkovs.
