  • From a letter of Russian poet and statesman Fyodor Tyutchev, dated December 10, 1852: "Perhaps you remember Prince Trubetskoy, whom we knew in Munich and who was said to be married to Taglioni. He was not married, but for many years openly lived with her and, just as openly, had a child from her; currently this boy is 10-11 years old. So, this prince Trubetskoy came here and, after spending the summer in Petersburg, he managed, with some difficulty, to go abroad for four months. And now he has just notified the government that he intends to enter into a legal marriage not with Mademoiselle Taglioni, but with her daughter - a sixteen-year-old girl, they say, very pretty, who thanks to this peculiar combination will become her stepmother's stepmother. I was not told just whether George Sand would be invited to preside over this wedding as a planted mother on this occasion. However, this Trubetskoy - a nice fellow, he is the brother of the one who so unsuccessfully took Zhadimirovskaya..." (Russian: Быть может, ты помнишь князя Трубецкого, которого мы знали в Мюнхене и о котором говорили, что он женат на Тальони. Женат он не был, но в течение многих лет открыто жил с нею и, так же открыто, имел от нее ребенка; в настоящее время этому мальчику 10-11 лет. Так вот, этот князь Трубецкой приезжал сюда и, проведя лето в Петербурге, добился, не без труда, разрешения вернуться за границу на четыре месяца. А сейчас он только что известил правительство, что собирается вступить в законный брак не с мадемуазель Тальони, а с её дочерью - шестнадцатилетней девушкой, говорят, очень хорошенькой, которая благодаря этой своеобразной комбинации станет мачехой собственного брата.)
