1. The standard study of Mazepa and his uprising is N. Kostomarov's Mazepai Maze-pyntsy, vol. 16 of his Istoricheskiiamonografiiiizsliedovaniia (St. Petersburg: Stasiule- vich, 1885). Two recent studies on this topic are O. Ohloblyn, HetmanIvanMazepaiiohodoba (New York: ODFU, 1960) and B. Kentrschyns'kyj, Mazepa (Stockholm: S6- derstrom, 1966). 2. For an overview of the Mazepists' activities, see the second part of Kostomarov's Mazepai Mazepyntsy, pp. 593-719.
3. In 1709 the tsar sent three official notes to the Porte on 10, 14, and 27 July de- manding the return of Mazepa.

Pylyp Orlyk (1672-1742) belonged to a szlachta (gentry) family of Czech origin which emigrated to Poland during the Hussite wars and later settled in Lithuania. His ed- ucation was an extensive one; initially he studied at the Jesuit Academy in Vilno and later moved to Kiev to continue his studies at the Mohyla Academy. As a result of his academic achievements and of his contacts with such men as Stefan Iavors'kyi, after the completion of his studies, Orlyk obtained a position as secretary of the consistory of the Kiev Metropolitanate and later he moved into Mazepa's chancellery. Eventually he be- came the Chancellor of the Zaporozhian Host and loyally followed Mazepa into exile. For a thorough survey of his political activities, see B. Krupnyts'kyi, HetmanPylypOr-lyk, vol. XLII of the PratsiUkrains'kohoNaukovohoInstytutu (Warszawa: Gerber, 1938). Unfortunately, Krupnyts'kyi was unable to utilize such key primary sources as Orlyk's diary and the French and Polish archives. A study based on these unutilized sources is my unpublished Ph.D. dissertation: "The Unwilling Allies: The Relations of Pylyp Orlyk with the Ottoman Porte and the Crimean Khanate, 1710-1742," Harvard University, 1973.

Charles Frederick, the Duke of Holstein, a favorite of Catherine I, was person- ally acquainted with and quite sympathetic to Orlyk. Moreover, General Johann Szten- flicht, the duke's envoy to St. Petersburg, eventually married the hetman's daughter.

E.Borshchak,Hryhor Orlyk (Toronto: Burns and MacEachern, 1956), p. 64. Hryhor Orlyk (1702-59) was the eldest son of the hetman. After serving in the Swedish and Saxon armies he entered French service and eventually achieved the rank of general in the French army. However, his specialty was carrying out secret and highly sensitive assignments in Eastern Europe and the Ottoman Empire for Louis XV. In this capacity he cooperated closely with and aided his father. Borshchak's study, although based on French archival sources, is highly romanticized and not always reliable. Documentary sources pertaining to Hryhor's myriad anti-Russian activities may be found in AAE, Cor. politique, Pologne, vol. 180 and in Hryhor's family archive located in Dinteville, Haute- Marne, France. 30.
