    Handwriting in Russian cursive

    Hi!

    Can you please help me to identify the Russian cursive cyrillic letters of this note, and, in particular, of the last word of the second line?




    My hypothesis is:


    Turgeneff – въ Субботу придеть смо-
    -треть двъ картины которыя въликому
    отъ Ивана Ивановича

    это точно не "въликому" ! ни по смыслу, ни по написанию.
    (Кстати, этот алфавит и способ построения фраз не используют уже с 1917 года)

    Turgeneff – въ Субботу придетъ смо-
    -треть двѢ картины которыя ??????
    отъ Ивана Ивановича

    Good guess. Just keep in mind that it is written in old orthography. There is no letter Ѣ in contemporary Russian alphabet.

    The word ????? indeed can be read as вѢликому but I see no sense in this phrase without context.
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?

    Thank you so much! God bless you! I suppose that this sentence was written around 1860. There is no context at all. That's why i'm so desperate about it!

    Could this mysterious word be a simple future tense verb of motion in first singular person related to "ot Ivana Ivanovicha"?

    There is no such verb. It must be "вѢликому", "to the great one".
