The Arrest of Pëtr Vasil’evich and His Exile from the Orphans’ Home
On January 26, 1887, according to the Doukhobor custom, there was a memorial service for Luker’ia Kalmykova. On this day, all the Doukhobors gathered at her graveside. After the liturgy was over, they arrived at the Orphans’ Home where she had lived. There was a dinner prepared for everyone, and at the conclusion, Ivan Fadeevich Makhortov called upon all of the brothers and sisters to give thanks to God according to Doukhobor beliefs, and then depart for their homes.
