    This book makes accessible—for the first time in English—declassified archival documents from the former Soviet Union, rabbinic sources, and previously untranslated memoirs, illuminating everyday Jewish life as the site of interaction and negotiation among and between neighbors, society, and the Russian state, from the beginning of the nineteenth century to World War I. Focusing on. MEMOIRS OF THE COURT OF ST. CLOUD Being Secret Letters from a Gentleman at Paris to a Nobleman in London BOOK 7 LETTER XXIV. PARIS, October, MY LORD: Though loudly complained of by the Cabinet of St. Cloud, the Cabinet of St. Petersburg has conducted itself in these critical times with prudence without weakness, and with firmness without.

    THIS BOOK AND ITS PURPOSE. By Henry W. Fischer. Of Memoirs that are truly faithful records of royal lives, we have a few; the late Queen Victoria led the small number of crowned autobiographists only to discourage the reading of self-satisfied royal ego-portrayals forever, but in the Story of Louise of Saxony we have the main life epoch of a Cyprian Royal, who had no inducement to say anything.   Soon I was swamped under a surfeit of accounts – now so easily downloadable from libraries all over the world in their scanned versions – with titles like Secret memoirs from the court of St. Petersburg. Or Memoirs of Countess Golovina – the lady-in-waiting to Catherine the Great.
