Natalia felt that her children should be proficient in Russian grammar and to understand the literature. First, Mary led the classes she or her sister, aunt Alexandrina.
. Later, after returning to the capital (in 1839), in spite of the uneasiness in the media, with Marie and her brothers (in front of the arrival of the Corps of Pages) is seriously engaged in several teachers recommended by friends of his father - Viazemsky, Zhukovsky, Pletnev

Probably, Leonid Pushkin Hartung and Mary met and betrothed rambunctious and a good stepfather Pyotr Lanskoy, who loved Mary as their own child. Maybe they met on their own, the benefit of the house was always a lot of people, among them not only writers and artists, but also military. Natalia did not think to prevent the marriage of Masha, she liked the thoughtful and considerate man with sad eyes. There was Leonid estate near Tula (with. Prilepa), there and gone to live Hartung shortly after the wedding in aprele1861 year.
. They are hospitable, generous home, where often arranged musical evenings and "tea balls" became known in the district, the couple is surrounded Hartung attention and respect.
. At one of the provincial balls in 1861godu in Tula acquainted with Maria Alexandrovna graph and writer Leo Tolstoy.
. Maria attracted his attention immediately, as soon entered the ballroom
. When he asked who this woman he was told, he said, admiringly: "Yes, now I understand where she gets her pedigree, these curls at the back!" Tolstoy wanted to be immediately submitted to the daughter of the Poet. They talked animatedly all evening. Maria, at his request, telling about his father (probably from her mother's words), shared his impressions of literature and art. Lev genuinely admired the subtlety of its taste, originality and boldness of opinion, and said later Sophia Andreyevna that Maria is not only externally but also internally, probably looked like a great father. The daughter of the poet's imagination is so struck by Tolstoy, that it will display its external features in the shape of the beloved heroine of his famous "family novel" - Anna Karenina.

It also found a ready-made a note in which he "swears an almighty gods, nothing stolen, and forgives his enemies". The main cause of death was considered Hartung Attorney N.T. Shipov, who said in court impassioned speech. The owner of the house where he lived the prosecutor denied him from the apartment, and ordered to leave immediately, not wanting to have, as he put it in his murderers. The result justified the universal belief of the innocence Hartung.
After the death of her husband, Maria was left virtually penniless. But do not lose heart. Long staying at his stepsisters Lansky - Sophia and Elizabeth. She helped raise nephews widowed elder brother Alexander. Several years had lived in his large and happy family. (Y Alexander Pushkin, Jr., had eleven children!)

In Moscow, Maria was an honorary trustee and chairman of the first Public Library Pushkin. She is often invited to all sorts of celebrations devoted to Pushkin, and the modest literary evenings, where they drank tea and read poems poets, often unknown to the public.

When I looked at her hands, then remembered the hands of Alexander Sergeevich, about the beauty of which read and heard many times.
