Милые мои Губерт и Губертиха!

Не отвечал вам, ибо собирался в Москву на этой неделе, да не пришлось. Буду во вторник. В этот день уезжает Анатолий, проводив его, я буду у вас часа в 4, так, чтобы не помешать вашему обычному дрыханью. Прошу вас в сей день вместе обедать у Юргенсонов, которому я написал о том. Очень хочется вас, милых, видеть. Итак, до свиданья во вторник.

Ваш П. Чайковский

23 August

My dear Hubert and Hubertikha!

I didn't answer you because I'd been intending to be in Moscow this week, but it didn't happen. I'll be there on Tuesday. This is the day that Anatoly leaves, and after spending it with him, I'll be with you for tea at 4, so as not to interfere with your customary rest. I wondered if you'd like to have dinner that day at Jurgenson's, to whom I've written about it. I very much hope to see you, my dears. And so, until we meet on Tuesday.

Yours P. Tchaikovsky
