27 августа

Куда тебе адресовать, о рассеянный немец! Вот что: приходи ко мне с Женей утром 1-го сентября в 10 часов, в Большую Моск[овскую] гостиницу, и вместе сходим к Прявишникову и Прибику.


П. Чайковский

27 August

What is your address, oh absent-minded little German![1]. How about coming to see me with Zhenya [2] on the morning of 1st September at 10 o'clock, at the Grand Moscow Hotel, and together we'll descend on Pryanishnikov and Přibík.

I hug you.

P. Tchaikovsky
