Toruń, 22 August 1969.
Thank you very much for your letter of the 17th of this month and for the article about the second edition of the Italian philosophical encyclopaedia – very instructive, I read it with sincere interest and with gratitude for the effort you put into it. We’re unfortunately late (the fault of the printer and the censors) in printing Philosophical Movement; we’re behind schedule with two consecutive issues and this will delay the appearance of your article somewhat. We’re supposed to receive issue XXVII/1, which is already printed, from the printer any day now; the next (double) issue XXVII/2-3 is being typeset; and the following issue, XXVII/4, has been completely prepared for printing and is waiting to be laid out. We are currently preparing issue XXVIII/1, to which I want to add your article; if nothing unforeseen occurs, it should come out in the first months of 1970.
On the occasion of your golden wedding anniversary, Tonia and I send you unfortunately belated, but no less heartfelt wishes; we celebrated our fortieth anniversary this year. We spent our holiday in Toruń, appreciating the comforts of home; we’re healthy and living a quiet life.
We both send you both our best greetings
