Wishes from the father
Mikołaj Chopin from Warsaw in a letter to his son sends wishes: "Thank you for your best wishes, I know your heart and I have no doubts in their sincerity. Let the heaven reward you for it, let it keep vigil at you, give you happiness and keep you in respect among honest people. These wishes are our constant wishes, not only at the starting new year. In the Christmas Eve we were all together. It was worth to see happiness of children which noticed the Star. You would have a lot of fun if you had been with us." 



Wishes for Sand
Paris. Fryderyk Chopin in a letter to George Sand: "Yesterday your letters made me very happy. This letter should arrive at your place on the very New Year day together with traditional candies stracchino and coldcreamem de Mme de Bonne Chose. (...) It is cold, but comfortable for those who can walk and I hope you don’t have the migraine and you stroll in the garden as you used to. I wish you and all your family happiness in the coming year, and when you can, please write to me that you are healthy. Yours Ch. To your precious children [best wishes] I am healthy, Grzym. is getting better, we are going together to Hôtel Lambert wearing all the available coats."
