Additional Details

"There are so many people who celebrate my definitive departure for Russia that I only have a few days for those who, I like to believe, aren't making a festival of it and in whose number I would like very much to count you--I would come tomorrow evening without fail and enjoy in advance much of the pleasant soiree that I will spend in your company, as kind as it is interesting. . . ."
