The article is devoted to the history of dating and the development of relations between I.A. Bunin and A.S. Cheremnov, reflected in the correspondence between Cheremnov and A.M. Gorky. A.S. Cheremnov’s letters have not been published. The poet Cheremnov is not studied sufficiently. It so happened that it was a short-term friendship with Bunin that helped him return from obscurity in our days. Meanwhile, his personality is worthy of study and memory. A talented satirist and lyricist Cheremnov was actively involved in the literary life of St. Petersburg and Moscow in 1904 and 1917 and in his letters left interesting evidence about it.
