26 июня [18]93

Милый друг!

1) Ключ, полученный тобой из Парижа, есть ключ от моего сундука, имеющего в скором времени прийти или уже пришедшего. Я, чтобы путешествовать налегке, отправил все лишнее из Парижа в сундуке на твоё имя.

2) фотографии от Федецкого суть мой заказ. Я забыл, уезжая, предупредить тебя! Пожалуйста, уплати!!

До свиданья! Корректуру пиэс уже отправил. Романсов, не получил.


П. Чайковский

26 June 1893

Dear friend!

1) The key I sent to you from Paris is the key to my trunk, which is due to arrive imminently if it hasn't already. I needed to travel lightly, and so I sent everything else from Paris in a trunk addressed to you.

2) Fedetsky's photographs were done to my order [1]. I forgot to inform you when I left! Please pay for them!!

Until we meet! The proofs of the pieces [2] are already on their way. I haven't received the romances [3].

I embrace you!

P. Tchaikovsky
