117a. FRANZ LISZT to VASILI BESSEL, St. Petersburg

Horpacs (Chez le Comte Szechenyi) February 2, 1874

DEAR SIR,

Pray excuse me for being so late in thanking you, you and all those who signed the telegram sent to Pesth on the occasion of my Jubilee fete. I am deeply touched with the most noble sentiments it expresses with chivalrous eloquence, and beg you to convey the tribute of my most sincere gratitude to Messrs. Balakirev, Borodin, Cui, Musorgsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, Shcherbachov, and Stasov.

You were kind enough, Sir, to let me see several of their works at Weimar; I appreciate and esteem them highly, and as far as it depends on myself I will do all I can to make them known, and shall feel honored thus to respond to sympathetic kindness which splendid colleagues such as these accord to

Their very devoted F. LISZT9


118. To VASILI BESSEL

Herewith I send you, Vasili Vasilyevich, the last bit of proof on Boris. I ask you to send to Röder one of the dedications (selected by you). I should like the whole dedication engraved in facsimile, and I believe you will carry out my wish. But in any case I ask you to retain my name in facsimile.

M. MUSORGSKY

4 Jan. '74.


119. A Dedication

I comprehend the people as a great personality, inspired by a "single idea." This is my task. I have attempted to resolve it in opera.
