Многоуважаемый Яков Степанович!

Ещё до получения Вашего второго письма, в коем Вы сообщаете свой адрес, я отправил в Киев, по адресу Идзиковского для передачи Вам, письмо, в коем сообщаю Вам о предполагаемой американской поездке и спрашиваю Вас насчёт некоторых условий, от коих зависит осуществление поездки. Надеюсь, что Вы это письмо получили. Если же нет, то придётся снова предложить Вам те вопросы, в ответе на которые я нуждаюсь, прежде чем поведу переписку о приглашении Вас в Америку.

Итак, жду с нетерпением Вашего следующего письма. Потрудитесь передать мой поклон Вашей супруге, всей капелле вообще и Грише в особенности.

25 June 1891
Town of Klin, Moscow province

Most respected Yakov Stepanovich!

Even before receiving your second letter [1], in which you provided your address, I had sent a letter addressed to Idzikovsky in Kiev for transmission to you, in which I informed you about a proposed American trip, and enquired regarding certain terms of which the trip depends [2]. I hope that you received this letter. If not, then I should have occasion to put these questions to you again, the replies to which I require before I enter into correspondence regarding inviting you to America.

Therefore, I look forward to receiving your next letter. Kindly convey my regards to your wife, the entire cappella in general, and Grisha [3] in particular.
