Petersburg University, I am majoring in the English language and literature and I also listen to lectures on history, philosophy, linguistics, etc. In some ways September would suit me best, as I have to be away most of the month and would like to have a "watchdog" in the house. Do you think they could let us know if they intend to come by train or by plane? Allow us to hope that we shall have the privilege and the pleasure of receiving you in Moscow one day.
After my lectures I like to play volleyball and tennis, lama member of our University volleyball team, in the evenings I read books or go out fore walk, or go to a movie for relaxation. Minister Kevin Nicholson, Associate Professor John Robinson, Chief Engineer Leonard Cole-man, General Manager Tom Jones). It would be no trouble whatsoever to drive them home. We are expecting you at the beginning of August and are hoping that you may stay until the end of August or longer if you can manage. We should be only too happy to offer you the same hospitality in return.
Apart from my schoolwork, my chief interests are volleyball and photography. We are looking forward to offering you hospitality in return for the hospitality you have kindly given us on many occasions. I hope you will find the dates suggested convenient. I shall do my best to call on you at a time you could receive me without upsetting your own time-table. But both of you must promise that you will let me melt into the household as much as I may without presumption.
When you write, don't forget to tell me what your hobbies are. I am taking eight subjects in all, but my favorite ones are chemistry and Russian. We want you to understand that we will see to all your needs while you are with us and to any expenses that may arise. Needless to say, we are looking forward very much to seeing you in January. Brown has informed me of your intention to come to our city in the summer, and this is indeed good news to me. Please let me know on what plane you will arrive and when I may expect you. If I may come on those terms, I shall consider it an honor and pleasure.
This would be practice for us, and if I make any mistakes, I hope you will correct them for me. You will be pleased to hear that in your letter you did not make any mistakes at all. There are many trees, lawns and gardens around our house. I spent the first two weeks at home at my native place. We should be happy to have you with us for the weekend following the Seminar. We are looking forward to seeing you and do hope that you can come. My husband wishes me to give you his regards and to thank you for extending your invitation to him as well. He is very sorry he does not feel up to any trip yet. Many thanks and best regards to you all from all of us here.
