Toruń, 8 December 1967.
Thank you very much for your letter of the 5th of this month and for the informational material you attached; it’ll be useful for Movement. In mid-November I was in Wrocław, as I’d been sent there for a consultation with a nephrologist, Prof. Wiktor; nothing serious, anyway. There, I met Iza, who had come for a ceremony at Ossolineum; from her, I learned that Dania, about whose health I’d had disturbing news, is not so bad off, which calmed my fears. Last week we had a period of mourning here in memory of Elzenberg, which seemed to come off well. Philosophical Movement will come out, the printing house assures me, before the end of this month; they held up the two successive issues for several months and now they’re hurrying to carry out the plan, as is unfortunately reflected in hasty corrections. On Saturday, the 16th of this month, there will be a meeting of the board of the Polish Philosophical Society, but Gumański will be attending it as my substitute, because they tell me to avoid the risk of catching a cold, which is easy to do on the train now.
I’ve only talked to your son on the telephone, but we’ve agreed to meet one of these days.
Fr Czapliński writes me from London that he is recuperating from a broken leg, caused by the carelessness of a motorcyclist who knocked him over in the street.
Both of us send you both very cordial greetings,
and a handshake for you
