I heard that there is a famous letter between Egorov and Lusin , which best reflects relation between the teacher student duo. Can anyone provide any link of that letter?

    $\begingroup$ Can you read Russian (if not then you should say so)? The Russian Wikipedia page for Egorov includes an excerpt from a letter from Egorov to Lusin with some bibliographic information after the excerpt. Just search that page for the word письма. $\endgroup$ – KCd May 28 '17 at 7:42

If you mean the letter of 4th August 1905, you can read it here in English translation (from Russian Mathematicians in the 20th Century by Yakov Sinai). There are also excerpts of other letters by Egorov.
