Olga Yakovenko, on January 11, said:

TO EVERYBODY: English Moscow English Club had been renting the palace of the princes Gagarin located at the corner of Petrovka Str, and Strastnoy Bld form 1802 to 1812. In this very Club the famous banquet in honour of the prince P.I. Bagration, the great general of the company 1812 took place, and this banquet is described in the roman “War and Peace by Leon Tolstoy” as organized by the elder Rostov. The building was erected in 1776 according the project of the architect M.F. Kozakov for the family of the princes Gagarin. During the Napoleon stay in Moscow the headquarters of the Main French Army Quartermaster were located in this palace. Stendhal, who belonged to that staff, had been living here and wrote; “There is no one club in Paris which could be compared with this one”. The building was practically completely fired in 1812 and then restored by the architect O.I. Bove up to 1833. In that time there was opened a hospital named Novo-Ekaterinenskaya, now this is a city hospital No 24.

Français Le Club Anglais de Moscou de 1802 jusqu’à 1812 louait le palais des princes Gagarine qui se trouve au coin de la rue Petrovka et du Boulevard Strastnoy. C’est dans ce Club qu’on a donné le célèbre banquet en honneur du prince P.I. Bagration, le général fameux de la compagne 1812, qui est décrit dans le romand de Léon Tolstoy « La guerre et la paix » comme organisé par Rostov-père. Le bâtiment était construit en 1776 d’après le projet de M.F. Kozakov pour la famille Gagarine. Pendant le séjour des troupes de Napoléon à Moscou, ce bâtiment était occupé par les états-majors de l Intendant principal de l’Armée française. Stendhal, qui appartenait au personnel de ces états-majors, habitait ici et écrivait les « Lettres de la Russie », et en particulier : “A Paris il n’y aucun Club qu’on puisse comparer avec celui-là”. Le bâtiment était presque totalement brûlé en 1812 et restauré par l’architecte O.I Bove vers 1833. Dès ce temps on y à placé l’hôpital nommé « Novo-Ekaterinenskaya », et maintenant c’est l’Hôpital de la ville No 24 .
