Баташа, голубушка!

Посылаю Вам корректуру и умоляю поспешно сделать её. Это середина 1-го действия. Сегодня я обедаю у С. И. Юргенсон. Ради Бога, приезжайте с Тоничкой повинтить и поболтать.

Целую ручки.

Ваш П. Чайковский

Batasha, golubushka!

I'm sending you the proofs and implore you to do them swiftly. This is the middle of the first act [1]. Today I'm having dinner with S. I. Jurgenson. For God's sake come along with Tonichka for drinks and a chat.

I kiss your hands.

Yours P. Tchaikovsky
