His announcement in the St. Petersburg Vedomosti of June 21, 1861 has been preserved, in which he warned clients about the temporary suspension of his work: “I have the honor to notify the most respectable public that on the occasion of the fire in my apartment, I temporarily moved to the Pevchesky Bridge, to Kalugin's house, apartment under N 34, in the yard. All the portraits and cards that were ready before the fire have been saved; so please welcome them to the address above.”
