Chopin in Majorca writes a letter to Kamil Pleyel: "I have arrived in Palma, a charming country, everlasting spring, olive trees, orange trees, lemon trees, palm trees, etc., etc. My health has improved […] The piano has not come yet. How did you sent it? Through Marseilles or Perpignan? I dream about music, but I don't play, because there are no pianos here... it is a savage country in this respect."

London. Chopin writes a letter to Wojciech Grzymała: "Today I am in bed for almost all day, but on Thursday [23 November] I am quitting this horrible at this season of the year London. I will spend the night from Thursday to Friday in Boulogne and on Friday I am in Place d'Orléans during the day to have a rest. Apart from the usual syndromes I also have neuralgia and I am swollen. Please, ask them to prepare bed linen and pillows that are dry. Ask them to buy cones, ask Mrs Etienne not to spare money on anything so that it is possible to arrive to a warm place. I have written to Derozierka to prepare carpets and curtains. I will pay Perrichet, the decorator, ask even Pleyel to send whatever piano on Thursday evening, and cover it with material. On Friday, make purchase a bouquet of violets to spread nice smell in the drawing room, I'd like to have some poetry when returning to my place and walking through the room to my bedroom where for sure I will stay for a long time. Thus on Friday in the middle of the day I am in Paris. One more day here, and I will get crazy, not dead. My female Scottish friends are so boring, God forbids. They follow me everywhere, I can't get rid of them."
