Баташа! Не забыли ли отправить мои письма? Я до сих пор не получаю ответа от Направника, а мне ответ нужен.

Простите, что понедельник не поспел заехать.

Обнимаю Вас и Тонющку.

Ваш П. Чайковский

Pleshcheyevo
20 September

Batasha! Did you forget to send my two letters? I still haven't had a reply from Nápravník [1], and I need an answer.

Sorry I didn't manage to call on you on Monday [2].

I hug you and Tonyushka [3].

Yours P. Tchaikovsky
