Testament Heanrsls tliat No
Rood Jin Said of Him
rAUIS, Deo. 7-One of the most strik
ing sentences in the diary of the late
Count Leo Tolstoi, which Is printed this
evening In the Journal Dee Debath as
hls hitherto unpublished testament and
was replaced by a brief forme! will dated
.fuly 37, 1B10, by which ho 'lea all his
literary property to his daughter, Alex
"If tho people of the world wish to read
my writing; let them dwell on those pas
sage where I know the .divine power has
spoken through mo and let them profit
from them throughout tholr Ilea."
The dlnry Is printed on the authority of
Count Bergtus Tolstoi. It was written
by his father under date of March Sf, 1836.
Count Leo Tolstoi asked that all re
frain from saying trood of htm after his
dcathi , .
After referring to himself as the
Interpreter of dlvlno power, ho said;
'Jt Imvejiad momenta when I felt my
self tp be the medium' for tlio eipreeilon
o ttho dlvlno will. I have some times
been so Impure and so subject to per
sonal passions that tho light of this
truth has been obsoured by my own
obscurlyfcr hut, detplte all I have served
at times an the lntermodlatry for Ills
truth and those have. been the happiest
momenta of my life. May God will that,
passing through ma, these truths have
not been sullied and may mankind find
In them Its pasture. It la only In that
that my writings have Importance."
The diary begins by saylnr that If he
does not make another this shall be his
testament. Tolstoi then requests to be
buried where he d!es- In a olty In the
least expensive coffin and In the least
expensive cemetery "as the poor are
Simple Funeral Requested,
"Let there be no flowers, no wreaths,
no discourse, and it possible, let the
funeral take place without priests and
without liturgy, but if that Is disagree
able to those who bury me, then let me
be interred with the liturgy, only as
(limply and cheaply as possible."
After asking that no announcement of
Ms death appear in the newspapers, and
that no obituary be printed, Tolstoi
writes at length concerning the disposi
tion of his works.
Referring to his unpublished writings,
he prescribe that only those be printed
which will "be useful to mankind," He
asks his heirs to abandon to the public
the right to publish his former works.
After giving; instructions relative to the
classification of his papers by his wfe
and daughters, he orders hs diaries to be
destroyed when what is worth preserving
has been extracted from them.
This applies particularly to the Jour
nals he kept when a bachelor, when ho
says, he ted the usual miserable life of
young men without principle. Then he
"After all, let my diaries remain as
