Дима! Я бы предпочёл, чтобы ты приехал на будущей неделе. В четверг я сам буду в Москве и, вероятно, останусь до воскресенья, теперь до четверга уж не стоит и приглашать. Я зайду к мамаше или в пятницу, или в субботу. Во всяком случае до скорого свидания.
Твой, П. Чайковский

Dima! I would prefer you to come next week [1]. On Thursday I myself will be in Moscow, and I'll probably stay until Sunday, so there's no point in inviting you until Thursday. I'll come to your mother's on Friday or Saturday. In any case I shall see you soon.
Yours, P. Tchaikovsky
