Прошла уже неделя, а перевода письма Дворжака нет. Если ты забыл, то, пожалуйста, устрой это дело и вышли немедленно в Петербург, Фонтанка, 15.

П. Чайковский

18 January

A week has already passed, but still there's no translation of the Dvořák letter [1]. If you've forgotten then please attend to the matter and send it to me immediately in Petersburg, Fontanka, 15.

P. Tchaikovsky

Notes and References

  1. Antonín Dvořák had written to Tchaikovsky on 2/14 January 1889 with a response (in Czech) to his invitation to conduct in Russia, which Jurgenson was arranging for Jan Hřímalý to translate for him. Evidently a translation arrived shortly after this letter was written, as Tchaikovsky was able to reply to Dvořák later that same day (see Letter 3722).
