Prof.Roman Ingarden v v v Zakopane, 1/2/1953
Zakopane, Anna Maria
v The Office of the Editorial Committee of the Library of Classics of Philosophy
v at the Polish Scientific Publishers PWN
v Warsaw, Krakowskie Przedmieście 79.
Dear Ms. Irena,
v First of all, I confirm the receipt of: a / the typescript of Spinoza’s Ethics, b/ an advance for the royalties for “Grundlegung zur Metaphysik der Sitten” via money order and c/ an advance for the royalties for “Critique of Pure Reason” via money order. I thank you for these, as well as for settling money matters with J. Suchorzewska, PhD and Gałecki, PhD.
v I wrote to PWN regarding the money order for the “Critique of Pure Reason”/the installment for December/, because I got the impression that the tax I was charged was too high /PLN 167, which is twice the amount it has been so far /, because at the same time royalties for my son Roman Stanisław for an article on Copernicus were mistakenly sent to my address, and probably both of these sums were added together and a higher tax rate was applied. I believe that this matter will be clarified upon my visit in Warsaw for the meeting.
v I would like to inform you that I have not yet sent the next portion of the translation of “Critique of Pure Reason,” and I will do so in a few days, because I still need to check a certain part of the translation.
v I have been in Zakopane since yesterday to be able to work in better weather conditions. The weather in Krakow has been very poor in recent months, which is bad for my health. I intend to stay here until 15th. Therefore, I am asking you to kindly notify me of the definite date of the Editorial Committee meeting /which was to be 1/16/, because I would like to travel to Warsaw directly from Zakopane. /Address: Zakopane, Małe Żywczańskie, 28. Anna Maria, Phone 11-66 /. – Please, let me know if I should prepare a paper on terminology for Kant
I send you my heartfelt wishes for a Happy New Year, deepest respect and cordial greetings
