Ungern-Sternberg states that a few days before his letter, an officer named Avreyanov travelled along the coast on his way from Riga to Tallinn and asked him for food and fresh water for 200 patients on board. The baron procured them the requested supplies and transported it all to the ship, which was at anchor in open water, the next morning. The sheet bearing the officer’s signature lists the aid received: 18 poods 30 pounds of rye crackers, 5 poods of rye bread, 10 poods 30 pounds of barley meal, ½ box of salt, 1 pood of butter, 30 oxen and 6 poods of hay. The Suuremõisa manor lord asks the Provincial Government to compensate him at market price.
