Letter from Jan Legowicz written 22.03.1955
The Library of the Classics of Philosophy commissioned me to edit Descartes’ conversations with Burman, translated into Polish by prof. Dąmbska. While editing, I introduced a number of stylistic changes, which I tried to do very responsibly, but which may disturb Mrs. Dąmbska and may even cause too strong a reaction. I would like to remain honest and on good terms with myself and others, which is why I dare to ask you, Professor, to kindly review the introduced changes and express your opinion on this matter. On this occasion, I would like to mention that I have not yet introduced the terms agreed on at one of the Committee meetings, which I will only do after receiving such a reply from you.
Thank you in advance for your kind response to my request, sincerely
Warsaw, March 22, 1955
