Серёжа! Хотел и вчера и сегодня к Вам заехать, — и, решительно не нашел времени. Будьте так добры — приезжайте сегодня в 11 часов в Эрмитаж. Будут все наши, начиная с Руб[инштейна] и кончая мной.
Ваш П. Чайковский

Serezha! I wanted to call on you yesterday and today, but in the end I couldn't find the time. Would you be so good as to turn up at the Hermitage at 11 o'clock. We'll all be there, starting with Rubinstein and ending with me.
Yours, P. Tchaikovsky

Notes and References

  1. Dated approximately on the basis that Tchaikovsky is known to have attended an informal gathering with friends, including Taneyev and Nikolay Rubinstein, during his visit to Moscow between 2/14 and 11/23 April 1880.
