Summary/Abstract: The article represents the results of an archival research conducted in spring of 2019 with the purpose to find the traces of F. M. Dostoevsky during his visit to Florence. New documents supplementing the history of an execution writ of a merchant from luzhsky district Burkovsky who did not manage to hand it over the writer because of the departure of the latter, were found and analyzed. Two documents were found In the Florence State Archive, composed by the prefect’s order in response to the temporary attorney Glinka’s request for search of the writer for the purpose to give him the above mentioned document. In addition, the article for the first time provides a photocopy of the record from the parish register of 1868, held in the Orthodox Cathedral of the Nativity of Jesus Christ and St. Nicholas, about the burial service, death and funeral of S. P. Koloshin, a newsman and correspondent of Dostoevsky, whose archive containing Dostoevsky’s letters has not been found yet.
