CENTRE POLONAIS DE RECHERCHES SCIENTIFIQUES A PARIS
Paryż, 23, rue Taitbout
v Thank you for your letter from May 21. The news it contains were far from comforting to me. The Academy has sent no instructions or materials for the Union Académique session. My trip to Brussels is not quite certain in the face of the fact that despite promises and announcements, I have been waiting in vain for two months for a normal, now completely insufficient, subsidy. The station is now vegetating thanks to some small loans I have procured from here and there; however, these amounts are negligible and it is impossible for them to cover the costs necessary to travel to Belgium. I am aware of the confusion that has occurred at the Academy following the death of the Secretary General and I am counting on the fact that the selection of a successor (i.e. prof. Dąbrowski) on June 5 will change the management methods and make them more efficient. It is doubtful, however, that this improvement will come in time to allow me to travel to Brussels.
v The initiation of printing of “Archivum Neophilologicum” now depends solely on you, i.e. on your final correction of the two articles, late Fr. Michalski’s and your own.
v The invitation I received to the PAAS Philosophical Commission is a pleasant surprise for me, but it is an honor that I am undeserving of. Maybe during the holidays, I will be able to prepare a short paper on a topic related to the philosophy of language, and thereby provide justification for the the Philosophical Commission’s appeal.
v My deepest respect and warm regards
Honorable Prof. Roman Ingarden
