About future

Chopin in his letter to Tytus Woyciechowski: "Last Wednesday I have tried my Concerto [in E minor] in a quartet. I was satisfied but not fully – people say that the last final is the prettiest (because most comprehensible)."

I am thinking about the future, also in the intimate sphere: "I will travel, but where, if I am not lured by anything. However, I do not think to stay in Warsaw and if you have some love affair suspicions, just like many people in Warsaw, reject them and be convinced that I could overcome everything concerning my ego and if I were in love, I could hide poor and incompetent ambitions several years more." And further: "I will dedicate myself to everything what is done for people. For people! That is for the human eye, so that the opinion which is important among us would not cause my misfortune, never internal, only superficial. Because people often call a misfortune the hole in their frock, or an old hat or such things. - If I have nothing to eat, you will have to admit me to Poturzyn as a copyist; I will live there by the stable comfortably just like during that year in the court. If I only stay healthy – I am going to work for my whole life. Several times I was thinking if I am lazy in reality, should I work more if I have enough physical strength. Jokes aside I am convinced that I am not one of the best loafers and that I can work when required even twice as much as today."

Ludwika

Nohant. Chopin in a letter to his sister Ludwika recollects her stay: "Often, when I come in, I look for things that you may have left and I see only the same place by the couch where we used to drink chocolate [!] - and the pictures copied by Kalasanty. There are more things left in my room by you: on the table there is the laced by you shoe, wrapped up [!] in the English tissue paper – on the piano there is a little pencil which is from your purse, and which serves me very well"

George Sand writes below: "I assure You that you are the best doctor Fryderyk has ever had, because it is enough to start talking about you to bring his will to live again."

Fryderyk Chopin's sister – Ludwika, together with her husband Kalasanty Jędrzejewicz stayed in France from the 31st July to the 3rd of September. The Composer came to meet them in Paris, he showed them round the city and next, they went to Nohant.

Chopin in his letter to Solange Clésinger: "I was arriving at the yard of Lafitte et Cie by one gate and the same day You were departing by the other gate, it was very simple, I had number seven on my stagecoach [in the meaning of the unlucky number]."

And further: "My Swede has left me, and I can't follow him to Stockholm."

The mentioned in the letter Swede was a doctor – masseur.
