Presented to Sophia Tolstaya by the author. 

When Leo Tolstoy was a child, his eldest brother Nikolai told him that there was a little green stick with the secret of how to make everybody happy written on it, and that the stick was hidden at Yasnaya Polyana – buried  in the Old Zakaz wood, on the edge of the large ravine. Many years later Leo Tolstoy asked his family to bury his body at that very place. He was buried there on November 9, 1910 (November 22 according to the Gregorian calendar).
