To the Most Holy Governing Synod
From Nestor, Bishop of the Aleut Islands and Alaska
June 18/30, 1881
Most humble report
I dutifully report to your holiness that because of the purchase by me of a building in San Francisco, donations were received: $1200.00 from the State Councilor Samuel Solomonovich Poliakov, 50.00 Pouns Sterling from Secret Councilor, Baron Alexander Ludwigovich Stiglitz, and $1150.00 from a philanthropist who wishes to remain unknown. In total, $2600.00 was donated to my disposition.
From this sum, I gave $1600.00 to Deacon John Krijanosky for his return travel to Russia, and the remaining $1000.00 were deposited by me as a partial payment for the remodeling of the newly purchased building in accordance with our needs.
Your holiness most humble servant,
Nestor, Bishop of the Aleut Islands and Alaska
