    On the last day of 1893, Constance Clara Garnett set sail on a seven-week tour of Russia. She arrived in St Petersburg, then travelled to Tver, Moscow and Nizhniy Novgorod. She spoke some broken Russian, and lots of excellent French. And she dined with Tolstoy who, characteristically, ate only porridge.
