correction re: Derzhavin's last words
Date
Body

I didn't realize I had a copy of Derzhvin's last words in the house.
But having found it I need to correct my reference to konets. The
acrostic actually reads "ruina chti" - - any suggestions as to how to
translate into English? I would attempt "[here you] read [my] ruin."
