Многоуважаемая
Александра Владимировна!

Очень рад, что легко могу исполнить Ваше желание. Я сейчас написал П. И. Юргенсону, прося его выдать Вам экземпляр «Чародейки». Желаю Вам приятно провести лето и хорошенько отдохнуть.

Искренно преданный и уважающий Вас,

П. Чайковский

19 April

Most respected Aleksandra Vladimirovna!

I'm very glad that I can easily satisfy your wish [1]. I have just written to P. I. Jurgenson [2], asking him to supply you with a copy of "The Enchantress". I wish you a pleasant summer, and a decent rest.

Your sincerely devoted and respectful,

P. Tchaikovsky
