Tchaikovsky, Peter Ilyich

Autogtraph letter signed ("Tchaikovsky"), 1 page (8 1/2 x 4 5/8; 210 x 116), in Russian, {no place}, 19 October 1888, to a lady friend, Catherina Ivanovna, asking for her assistance on a "diplomatic" issue; matted and framed with an image of Tchaikovsky

A secret diplomatic mission?  Tchaikovsky asks his correspondent if she would be "good enough to take the trouble to carry out a diplomatic mission."  Needing to reply to a letter of E. C. Kachkina  for which he has no address, Tchaikovsky  asks Catherina Ivanovna to contact the individual and schedule a meeting either in his room at the Moscow Hotel, or at his correspondent's residence.  He insists nothing  having to do with  their communication be known.
