Партитуры симфонии у меня нет. Не далее, как в прошлое воскресенье её приносил ко мне твой же гравёр для разъяснения разных недоразумений и он же, разумеется, её назад отнёс. Да и с какой стати я бы имел эту партитуру? Скажи, пожалуйста, покупка скрипки была пуфом? Впрочем, завтра увидимся.
П. Чайковский

I don't have the full score of the symphony. As recently as last Sunday your engraver brought it to me to clarify various misunderstandings, and of course he took it back with him. But why on earth should I even have this score? Please, tell me whether the violin was bought for a pouffe? Anyway, I'll see you tomorrow.
P. Tchaikovsky
