Letters of Anton Chekhov, by Anton Chekhov

To K. S. Stanislavsky.

YALTA, July 28, 1903.

. . . My play “The Cherry Orchard” is not yet finished; it makes slow progress, which I put down to laziness, fine weather, and the difficulty of the subject. . . .

I think your part [Translator’s Note: Stanislavsky acted Lopahin.] is all right, though I can’t undertake to decide, as I can judge very little of a play by reading it. . . .
