Letter from Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz written 04.11.1937
Honoured and Dear Professor:
Thank you very much for the card – I should have written a long time ago and put it off because I wanted to send a “work” (a tiny little one actually), which was not rewritten. Thank you very much in my capacity as the “impresario” for Cornelius, who was delighted with you and Ajdukiewicz. I’m not in the mood to write anything, because I have various existential and financial problems. I do not know if I will get out of this whole complication – I am [being] strangled by my life. I am very sorry that you cannot come and I worry about your health. Wouldn’t it be worth it, taking a leave to come to Zakopane and radically put an end to these flu bugs. I cannot deal with philosophy effectively yet. I make the last effort to get out, and then I fall into nothingness. I am enclosing a brochure and I am asking you kindly to send back the biology article, if possible with your comments on it.
I’m not sure if you know the abbreviation:
ŁOPS RP 3W (it comprises all the niceties for everyone). The ascronym mania does not leave me even in these hard times.
