19 июля 1893 г[ода]

Я вчера, во-1-х, отчаянно кутил с нашей компанией, а во 2-х, издержал с невероятной быстротой все деньги, а потому должен был занять в гостинице 100 р[ублей]. Сейчас уезжаю, до свиданья!

Твой, П. Чайковский

19 July 1893

Yesterday I was 1) frantically carousing with our companions, and 2) spending all the money at an incredible rate, with the result that I had to borrow 100 rubles from the hotel. I'm leaving now, farewell!

Yours, P. Tchaikovsky
