Honoured and Dear Professor:
Thank you very much for your cards. For the love of God, please do not take “pity” on my letter and response: I can wait as long as it takes. Terrible things have manifested themselves in my correspondence with Cornelius. I would like you to look at this controversy “on the traverse” of idealism. Wie kann man ein erkenntnistherretischer Idealist sein ohne ein Ontologischer zugleich werden, das kann ich nicht kapieren. [How can one be an epistemological idealist without becoming ontological at the same time? I cannot understand that.]
I am already in Warsaw in a state of deep depression.
I enclose words of respect and affection to you and your wife. F.G. [family greetings]
I haven’t seen any of the philosophers here yet. I’m writing about this state of being for itself, but it is a very difficult thing.
