Letter from Prince Dolgorukov to Count Benckendorff
Letter dated September 9 1915 written from Mogilev. Dolgorukov writes of plans to move to Kaluga and states that they have not received any directives or any plans for work, he is very pessimistic about the war and the future of Russia. He says that Ministers Polivanov and Prince Sherbatov complain about Goremykin who apparently conceals everything from them and is incapable of conducting business. They propose that the Tsar should have a meeting with the 'Old Man' (Goremykin) who is coming to Mogilev. He also reports that the Germans are heading towards Dvinsk in order to drive a wedge between Northern and Southern armies and hinder Russian re-grouping, from several reports the Germans are convinced that the Russian army is demoralised.
