Пожалуйста, исполни две просьбы.
1) Подари мне экземпляр «Снегурочки».
2) Дай, ради Бога, 25 р[ублей] сер[ебром] для отправления брата в Петербург.

Засим не забудь, что завтра вечером ты обещал быть у меня.

Твой П. Чайковский

Please carry out two requests:
1) Furnish me with a copy of "The Snow Maiden".
2) For God's sake, give me 25 silver rubles to send to my brother in Petersburg.

Whereupon, don't forget that you promised to visit me tomorrow evening.

Yours P. Tchaikovsky
