Adolph Brodsky
19th October 1891

Tchaikovsky writes to wish the Brodskys every success in New York. He reaffirms his love and friendship for Adolph and also for his wife after Leipzig. He philosophises on how fate brings people together in intimacy and then separates them for many years. Tchaikovsky thinks of the Brodskys on the Furst Bismark familiar to him and can picture them in New York. He has known of Brodsky's appointment through Damrosch for a long time and thoroughly approves of Brodsky's decision to move to America. As for himself, Tchaikovsky is working hard to complete 2 big scores; he has to go to Hamburg and Prague for opera productions, and to France and Holland for concerts as well as conducting in various parts of Russia. He has been invited to America in the spring but has been offered a very paltry fee. Tchaikovsky has not had the parts of his 3rd suite which he used in New York returned and is in dire need of them for the new edition. He requests Brodsky to bestir himself to find them and have them sent to Jurgenson. Tchaikovsky strongly commends Konius, with whom he became intimate in Paris, to Brodsky and is delighted that he will meet such good compatriots on foreign soil. He has very happy memories of New York and its people. He asks Brodsky to remind Konius that he promised to write. Dated 19 Oct 1891.
