Beautiful and long letter of hahn declining an invitation to a musical evening. "Dear sir, although robust and powerful, I am not very strong, and I am already extremely tired by the races, rehearsals and work of the last few days.
So I'd be afraid if I went to bed very late tomorrow or rather early the day after tomorrow to be more good at nothing. So I have to give up the very pleasant prospect of having a lovely evening! Thank Mademoiselle [sibyl] Sanderson for me, convey to her my sincere regrets. These ladies will understand, I'm sure, that it is not without reason that I deprive myself of this pleasure. As for the date of the performance, I swear to you, I play feet, hands, heads, shoulders, and especially tongue to delay them.But, once again, my voice rang without result. In addition, we do not yet have the femm e!!! In addition, we are thinking of dressing the man as a pierrot! In addition, we need a lot of work! Vox clamantis in deserto [the voice of the one crying in the desert] don't pay attention, it's Russian! All these gentlemen say we'll be ready then! Thank you for your good hospitality, that's very kind of you! Another thousand regrets for tomorrow night, and a thousand sincere compliments.
