3 Juni 1893

Weder heute noch morgen ist es nur leider unmöglich mit Ihnen Abends zusammen sein! Heute diniere ich in der Russischer Gesandschaft und morgen bei De-Munk. Also hoffentlich sehen wir uns die künftige Woche! Ich umarme Sie, mein lieber Freund.

P. Tschaïkowsky

3 June 1893

Unfortunately I cannot be with you either today or tomorrow evening! Today I am having dinner at the Russian embassy, and tomorrow with De-Munk. So hopefully we shall see each other next week! I embrace you, dear friend.
