Letter addressed to the Russian conductor and composer Mikhail Romanovich Schiglev (1834-1903). Schiglev was one of the closest friends of Alexander Borodin. „I hasten to inform you that I have seen Cui today. He’s got nothing against performing the opera*, however he’s got no music score: either Rahter or Hlaváč has it, Cui doesn’t remember. In any case, Cui would like you to come by and have negotiation about it. He lives near the Anichkov bridge along the Fontanka river, house Nr.38, flat Nr.12.
You can find him there every day from 6-7 pm, and on the saturdays, sundays and mondays also in the morning from 9 to 13 pm. Take care. Aleksander Borodin“ - *Apparently it’s about intention to perform one of the operas of Cesar Cui at "the St.Petersburg Circle of Music Lovers" (St.Petersburg amateur choral and orchestral society), where Shiglev was as the conductor.
