Милый Пётр Иван[ович]

Я должен завтра или послезавтра получить 300 р[ублей] из Музык[ального] Общ[ества] за свою фантазию. Но мне необходимо 25 р[ублей] сегодня и сейчас, и потому очень прошу их прислать мне; я отдам тебе (честное слово) сейчас по получении.

Твой П. Чайковский

Tomorrow or the day after I ought to be receiving 300 rubles from the Musical Society for my fantasia [1]. But I need 25 rubles right now today, and therefore I plead with you to send them to me; I'll repay them to you (on my word of honour) immediately upon receipt.

Yours P. Tchaikovsky
