Борис Петрович! Посылаю тебе инструментовку квартета «Ночь», сделанную С. И. Танеевым. Думаю, что весьма не мешало бы напечатать её и голоса.
П. Чайковский
28 марта [18]93 г.

Boris Petrovich! I'm sending you an orchestration of the quartet Night, made by S. I. Taneyev. I think it really wouldn't be a bad thing to print it and the parts [1]
P. Tchaikovsky
