8 июля [18]89

Милый Боря! Я решился существенных перемен в «Marche Slave» не делать, но очень попросил бы Кризандера исправить все имеющиеся в партитуре ошибки (разумеется, в том случае, если П[ётр] И[ванович] хочет сделать новое издание).

Итак, если нужно моё разрешение для печатания новых голосов, то оное даю весьма охотно.

Целую тебя в обе пухлые щеки. Кланяйся Саше, Нине Валер[ьяновне] и Павлу Иван[овичу].

Твой, П. Чайковский

8 July 1889

Dear Borya! I've decided not to make significant changes to the "Marche Slave", but would ask Chrysander [1] to correct all the existing mistakes in the full score (naturally, in the event that Pyotr Ivanovich wants to do a new edition).

Therefore, if my permission is required to print new parts, then I give it most willingly [2].

I kiss you on both chubby cheeks. I bow to Sasha, Nina Valeryanovna and Pavel Ivanovich.

Yours, P. Tchaikovsky
