(A) Warsaw. Wilhelm Korabiowski replies to Letter from Bruno Schulz.
(B) Kazimiera Rychterówna writes a letter to Bruno Schulz.
(A) Korabiowski’s answer* indicates that the unpreserved letter of Schulz must have been about a meeting and a conversation about his literary work. Korabiowski – a critic, journalist, satirist, actor – worked on the preparation of a “critical study about Shops* and Sanatorium*”1, which he intended to deliver first in the form of a reading at the Polish Literary Union in Lviv, and then print it in Pion* or Tygodnik Ilustrowany*2. In the letter, he laments that they were unable to meet during Schulz’s recent stay in Warsaw and have a conversation. “Conversation”, as he writes, “of a heavily indebted debtor [...] with a very expensive creditor”3. He assures Schulz of “great gratitude for the moments of delight and revelation”4, which he owes to his books. He only has trouble getting a copy of Sanatorium Under the Sign of the Hourglass. Yet another reader is waiting for a book borrowed from Romana Halpern*. So he asks Schulz to send the promised copy “even for a period of a month”5. (sr) (transl. mw)
(B) He convinces Schulz to go to Paris and provides valuable tips on Paris contacts.
