The Chickering Piano and Vladimir de Pachmann
 
————————
 
  At the close of his first American concert tour, M. de Pachmann addressed to Messrs. Chickering & Sons a letter, of which the following is a translation.  
  NEW YORK, April 12, 1890.  
  MESSRS CHICKERING & SONS.
        Gentlemen:
    As it is my intention to take with me to Europe, for my personal use, a concert grand, I beg you will acquaint me with the artist price of the same. The Chickering pianos are the noblest products of the piano makers' art, and respond, as no others do, to every requirement of the most exacting virtuoso; in other words, they attain the highest point of perfection, and are the model instruments of the world.
 
  Respectfully yours,  
  VLADIMIR DE PACHMANN.  
 
  After a few months' sojurn in the Catskills and at Saratoga, during which M. de Pachmann acquired a closer acquaintance with the Chickering piano, the eminent virtuoso sent to the manufacturer the following:  
  "THE WILLOUGHBY," SARATOGA, August 25, 1890.  
      The Chickering Piano rightfully stands alone, for on this earth it is not only unsurpassed but unequalled. I can give logical and esthetic proofs of my assertion. When one asks: Why do these unique manufacturers attain perfection? The answer is: Because they have endeavored to secure (as no others have done) and have succeeded in securing the nearest possible approach to the tone of nature to what is known as the human voice: the Chickering piano sings like a lovely voice. This is no compliment, but the expression of my innermost conviction, if I may harbor an opinion on this subject.  
  Yours truly,  
  VLADIMIR DE PACHMANN.
