Letter from Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz written 14.02.1939
Honoured and Dear Professor:
Thank you for the letter. I am very sorry about this photo. You cannot be responsible for the fact that I did not remember the given content. I thought that if there is a number, then everything is alright. It is still possible that under the right circumstances I will find it. It seemed to me that this was you in the second one. I am therefore sending back 1 zloty (2 fis [International Ski Federation] stamps). I’ll be working on the article soon. I better write it in Polish, because I cannot do it in German right away. I would like to kindly thank you for your intention to translate it, but won’t it be too much of a sacrifice given your other activities. My gratitude will be revealed in a familiar way. Here fis [International Ski Federation] continues in terrible conditions. I au fond [basically] do not care, but it is unfortunate. It was not until today that the snow started to hit.
Thank you again for everything and I am sorry for that thing [about the photo mixup].
