Postcard from Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz written 29.08.1937

29.VIII 1937
Honoured and Dear Professor:
Thank you very much for the letter and the brochure. I am not writing any more for now, because I assume you will choose to come here. Your temperatures are worrying, and Zakopane is probably necessary before winter work. People come here to get rid of their fevers. I am going to spend September (¾ at least) in Z[akopane], unless some catastrophe occurs. I am expecting you here, then. The weather will be fine, as it has been pouring for the whole of August. I am writing about logic (for the last time), the thing above my strength, but as a prelude to Carnap – necessary.
F.G. [family greetings]
(I advise you to stop smoking – [I recommend]  a pipe without inhaling).
I enclose words of respect and affection, and thank you once again. F.G. [family greetings]

n                Witkacy.

I had a number of interesting, but hopeless conversations with Wundheiler (an eddingtonist*) – but it’s over. Metallmann is here, but he’s almost finished (just Metallmann’s candle stump).
