The publisher Sina writes a letter to Fryderyk Chopin: "You have promised, my dear and beloved friend, to meet me one day, in order to talk about the manuscripts you have in your file or which you will write in the future; however, I have not received from you any message concerning this fact, thus I am sending these words to remind you of your promise and to ask for indicating to me a date and hour when I could come to you and talk about important issues. I am convinced that we will reach a compromise easily in these issues and I will be happy if according to your wishes I will be able to place comfortably the youngest children of your imagination, full of charm and spirit, and original."

Aristocratic quagmire
Stephen Heller to Robert Schumann: "I don’t see Chopin t all. He got stuck stiff in the aristocratic quagmire. He is refined to the highest degree. […] He prefers salons to high mountains, suffocating fumes of the lighting gas to fresh mountain air, but he composes – what is utterly incomprehensible – completely differently, that is beautifully and profoundly."
