Карлуша! Николай Леонтьевич дал мне голоса первой сюиты моей с разными очень хорошими поправками и знаками, поставленными Максом, но в партитуре этих всех отметок нет. Между тем мне необходимо иметь ту партитуру, которая согласна с голосами и на которой Макс поставил свои отметки. Пожалуйста, нельзя ли поискать; она непременно должна быть где-нибудь в библиотеке, и если Ник[олай] Леонт[ьевич] её отыщет, то пошли её к Петру Ивановичу, который мне её доставит.

Обнимаю тебя; ужасно жаль, что я не успел с тобой хорошенько проститься.

Анне Леонтьевне и детям поклон. Обнимаю вас всех.

П. Чайковский

2 December

Karlusha! Nikolay Leontyevich [1] has given me the parts for my first suite with various first-rate corrections and markings added by Max, but these indications aren't in the full score. For the moment it's essential for me to have that full score, which is consistent with the parts, and on which Max has made his indications [2] . Please, could you look for it; it's bound to be in the library somewhere, and if Nikolay Leontyevich turns it up, then send it to Pyotr Ivanovich, who will deliver it to me.

I hug you; I'm awfully sorry that I didn't manage to say goodbye properly.

A bow to Anna Leontyevna and the children. I hug you all.

P. Tchaikovsky
