Zakopane, 8/1/55

            Dear Władysław,

                               I’ve been in Zakopane for a few days, because I couldn’t stand the Cracow fog any more. I’ve got a place here at the Anna Maria until the 17th of this month. The weather so far is rather good, the past few days have been splendid. – I searched among my acquaintances for those rubber stockings for you; unfortunately, it turned out that just a few days ago one of them sold such a stocking. My wife was supposed to take care of this matter in Warsaw; unfortunately, she forgot to do it; if I were to write now, it wouldn’t arrive on time; accordingly, I’m sorry to inform you that my help in this matter has proved unreliable. How is your leg? In the long run, is everything knitting well? And what about sleeping? Did you consult Dr A. and did he help you somehow? As for me, anyway, nothing new. I’m still sitting on the issue of causality; lately I’ve been dealing mainly with Born’s book on the subject, but apart from many difficult physical issues which I had to wade through with difficulty, I haven’t learned much from a philosophical point of view.

            I send you cordial wishes for a peaceful New Year, and first and foremost the speediest possible return to health. When I get back, I’ll come down to see you immediately. I attach cordial greetings for you and best regards to your wife.
