Душа моя!

Убедительно прошу тебя дать мне 50, а если не можешь, то хоть 25 р[ублей] сер[ебром] в счёт остальных ста. Прости за приставанье, но, ей-Богу, погибаю.

П. Чайковский

My dear chap!

Can I press you to give me 50, or if that's not possible, then at least 25 silver rubles on account against the outstanding hundred. I apologise for pestering, but by God I'm desperate.

P. Tchaikovsky
