Дорогая Анна Львовна!

Я явлюсь к Вам в субботу к обеду. Еду в Лейпциг специально для Вас. Прошу Вас никому не сообщать о моем приезде, ибо, кроме Вас, не пойду ни к кому.

Обнимаю Адольфа, целую Ваши ручки.

П. Чайковский

25/13 February 1889

I'll be calling on you on Saturday for dinner. I'm coming to Leipzig especially for you. I ask you not to mention my arrival to anyone, because I'm not going to see anyone else besides you [1].

I embrace Adolph, kiss your hands.

P. Tchaikovsky
