А. А. Брандукову!

Милый Толя! Если хочешь застать меня, приходи около 12½. Я не мог тебя ждать, ибо по делам нужно было рано уйти из дому.

Твой, П. Чайковский

Если не можешь быть днём, то заезжай в 8 часов на вокзал; я сегодня уезжаю.

Dear Tolya! If you want to catch me, come around 12.30. I can't wait for you, because I have to leave home early on business.

Yours, P. Tchaikovsky

If you can't do this afternoon, then come to the station at 8 o'clock; I'm leaving today.
