The German Edition of the Diary (1849) is not complete, although the editor states this in his foreword! Instead the editor left out all (long!) passages which dealt with every day life and war cruelties which to him were obviously of minor interest to the reader. He fills in the gaps with short sentences hinting at the missing text. That is the only way the reader learns about those omittances. Maren Lorenz, Hamburg, Germany

That's not completely true. The German Translation of the Diary is not complete until 1692. From then on, it's a word-for-word translation (by Posselt). -- Paul 80.219.192.52 20:01, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

"against the tsaritsa Sophia Alekseyevna" She never was a tsaritsa. You can call her tsarevna (tsar's daughter) or regent, but she never ruled Russia as independent ruler, only as regent for her younger brothers Peter and Ivan.

The best article about Patrick Gordon is in the Polish Wikipedia (recently written). You are welcome to take a look, even if you do not understand the language.--Alexvonf (talk) 11:24, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
