Chernyshyov offers his humble apologies to his correspondent for failing to attend an event and explaining that he 'will make it up to him, however much it takes, and will be mortified for the rest of his life by the inattention that he paid to the matter, to be deprived of the pleasure and honour of his company today', further writing that he knows of only one single means 'to excuse the stupidity of the Courtier' who made the mistake of not bringing the invitation, and that is to come to his correspondent's house that afternoon 'so that he will at least have the satisfaction of testifying in front of all the companyÂ….such friendship, & which is the displeasure of his disgrace today'. With integral address leaf in Chernyshyov's hand, and bearing a red wax seal. One small area of paper loss to the lower corner of the integral leaf, VG £100-150
