Reconnaissance éternelle et sans bornes, complètement heureux. Veuillez transmettre expressions de profonde reconnaissance au ministre. Suis anéanti par l'excès de la magnificence auguste, qui me rend heureux et riche pour la vie.
Tschaikovsky

Eternal and boundless gratitude, completely happy. Please convey deep appreciation to the Minister. I am overwhelmed by the great august magnificence, which makes me happy and rich for a lifetime. Am overwhelmed by surfeit of august magnificence, making me happy and rich for life.
Tchaikovsky
