Милая Анна Яковлевна!

Я только что вернулся из Петербурга, останусь здесь, вследствие необходимости окончить спешные корректуры и другие работы, по крайней мере полторы недели. Когда буду в Москве, дам Вам знать, и поговорим о делах Ваших.

А пока до свиданья.

Ваш П. Чайковский

Кондратьев и Эмма Вам кланяются.

15 January 1886

I have just returned from Petersburg, and will be remaining here, due to the need to finish urgent proofreading and other work [1], which will take at least a week and a half. I will let you know when I will be in Moscow, and we will discuss your affairs.

Meanwhile, until we meet.

Yours P. Tchaikovsky

Regards to Kondratyev and Emma.
