Многоуважаемый Дмитрий Васильевич!

Сей молодой человек приехал из Перми, где он был в каком-то монастыре служкой, чтобы изучать музыку и сделаться регентом. Помогите ему Вашими советами. Я решительно не знаю, что ему нужно сделать, чтобы добиться цели.

Искренне уважающий Вас

П. Чайковский

Most respected Dmitry Vasilyevich!

This young man has come from Perm, where he was an altar boy in one of the monasteries, in order to study music and to become a chorister. Please assist him with your advice. I know absolutely nothing about what he needs to do in order to fulfil his intentions [2].

Your sincerely respectful,

P. Tchaikovsky
