            Dear Władysław,

                                  thank you for your card with greetings from Jerusalem. Unfortunately, I was unable to take part in this congress, because there was nobody to pay the expensive travel costs for me. Besides, I didn’t feel strong enough for this exhausting trip. I was curious, however, as to whether there was anything interesting (and if so, what) at the meetings as well as at the general assembly of the Institute. I assume you’ve already returned to Warsaw, and I’d be grateful for a few lines.

            Apart from that, Czeżowski was here recently and told me that around 10 May there’s some kind of congress in Nieborów, organised, it seems, by the Polish Academy of Sciences, bringing together philosophers dealing with ethics. Czeżowski mentioned the names of some of the participants (Schaff, Kotarbiński, Fritzhand, Czeżowski). I’d be grateful if you’d be so good as to let me know whether you’ve received an invitation to this meeting and whether you’re going to take part in it.

            As of now, I’m not going to Warsaw. I intend to go to Yugoslavia in the spring, provided the Polish Academy of Sciences obtains a passport for me and pays my way. At the moment, that’s in the works, and I don’t know what the outcome will be. As of now, the other invitations I’ve had have never gotten off the ground.

                                             Cordial greetings, and best regards to your wife

                                                                                                                   Your Roman
