Дорогой Василий Сергеевич!

Если возможно, примите участие в горячо рекомендуемом Вам сим письмецом Гребневе. В чем дело, он сам Вам объяснит. Я этого симпатичного чудака знаю очень давно и всегда очень любил его.

Искренно преданный,

П. Чайковский

В октябре надеюсь повидать Вас.

1st September

If possible, could you put your name to an enthusiastic note of recommendation for Grebnev [1]. He will explain the circumstances. I've known this amiable eccentric for a very long time, and have always liked him.

Sincerely devoted,

P. Tchaikovsky

I hope to see you in October.
