Многоуважаемый Яков Петрович!

Посылаю Вам при сем два кресла и извиняюсь, что они очень далеки от сцены. Это всё, что я мог достать.

Искренно уважающий Вас,

П. Чайковский

Most respected Yakov Petrovich!

Herewith I have two seats for you and apologise that they are very far from the stage [1]. This is all that I could obtain.

Your sincerely respectful,

P. Tchaikovsky
