The article shows how I. A. Goncharov and P. A. Valuev’s newspaper North Post (Severnaya Pochta) was used as an instrument of political reforms. The campaign of the «letters to the Tsar» organized by Valuev in support of the suppression of the Polish Uprising by the government is analyzed. The author shows that Valuev used the «letters to the Tsar» as an argument in favor of establishing the fi rst Russian parliament. The infl uence of Goncharov’s experience of working for a newspaper on the evolution of his novel is also noted.
