Милый Пётр!

Посылаю тебе моего Мишу с пиэсами; пиэсы возьми, а Мишу возврати мне, вручив ему в запечатанном письме следуемый мне гонорарий (40 р[ублей] сер[ебром]).

Твой неизменный друг.

П. Чайковский

Dear Pyotr!

I'm sending you my Misha with the pieces [1]; take them, and hand him a sealed envelope containing my fee (40 silver rubles), which Misha will bring back to me.

Your abiding friend.

P. Tchaikovsky
