С[ергей] И[ванович]! Посылаю тебе обещанные билеты. Если два окажутся лишними, — предложи Масловым, — а то-так пришли мне, — я их помещу.
П. Чаиковский

Sergey Ivanovich! I'm sending you the promised tickets. If two proves to be too many, suggest it to the Maslovs — if they come I'll find spaces for them.
P. Tchaikovsky

  1. Dated by the editors of П. И. Чайковский. Полное собрание сочинений, том XVII (1981), on the basis that the tickets mentioned in the letter probably related to the Moscow premiere of The Queen of Spades on 4/16 November 1891.
