Postcard from Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz written 01.10.1937

1.X 1937
Honoured and Dear Professor
Thank you very much for the card. I sent mine a day before the receipt [of yours]. Cornelius struggles with various difficulties. I expect a definite answer from him regarding my final plan, and as soon as I receive it, I will notify you immediately. Today I have finished the first draft of the Treaty on (BfI) [Being for Itself], which I have dared to dedicate to you. It is 115 pages of Kocept-papir. Now I am moving on to Carnap, and after Warsaw I will try to do Wittgenstein. Thank you for everything, I am v[ery] moved by your thank-yous – it’s probably polite. My complications are currently decreasing. But what will transpire?
ERFB [I enclose words of respect and friendship for you both] F.G. [family greetings] (the acronym method)

  n                             Witkacy.

I am reading D. Carrel’s “L’homme – cet inconnu”. Quite impressive.
