Postcard from Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz written 15.06.1938

15.VI 1938
Honoured and Dear Professor:
I was not writing  because I was waiting for my condition to improve. Meanwhile, it is getting worse and I seriously think if I should not end  myself “prematurely” (but in relation to what! – work on Carnap?).  Everything has unravelled hopelessly and I have little to face but suffering. I am currently in Katowice, where I am supposed to have some portraits and readings at the Philo[sophical] Soc[iety] (on Friday) 27/VI I have a reading at the Warsaw Philo[sophical] Soc[iety].  1/VII I am supposed to be in Zakopane. July – and then complete darkness, which will likely consume me completely. This is the same story that I spoke to you about. Ha – too bad. It’s better early than too late. In any case, I will see you in Zakopane, which I am very happy about. I succeeded in getting the general basis of the critique of Vienna. Here I had interesting conversations with Lutmanowa.
ERFB [I enclose words of respect and friendship for you both] F.G. [family greetings] 3W [Your faithful Witkacy].
Perhaps you would like to take my essay on idealism to Z[akopane].
