Несчастная судьба опять воспрепятствовала попасть в Селище. Даст Бог, лет через 35 попаду, а пока низко Вам кланяюсь.
П. Чайковский

Unfortunately fate has again thwarted me from making it to Selishche [1]. God willing I'll make it there in another 35 years, but until then I bow deeply to you.
P. Tchaikovsky

Notes and References

  1. The Maslov family estate was at Selische, in Oryol province. Although Tchaikovsky was often invited to spend the summer there, he was never able to find the opportunity.
