W. Tiesenhausen (i.e., Vladimir Gustavovich Tizengauzen, 1825-1902), of the Commission Imperiale Archeologique of the Ministry of the Imperial Court in St. Petersburg writes to an unidentified museum director. Tiesenhausen mentions the excavations of terracotta pieces by Professor N. I. Veselovsky in the Afrosiab near Samarkand and the fact that they will be publishing the most interesting ones in 19 plates. He asks the director to see if his museum has similar objects to assist with establishing provenance and chronology.
