Fontana Marseille and Polonaise in C
Marseilles. Fryderyk Chopin writes a letter to Julian Fontana in which he asks him to do dozens of things concerning manuscripts, editions and money, furniture, the apartment: "There are my issues. […] The answer to your honest and true letter is in the second Polonaise [in C minor, Op. 40 No. 2], it is not my fault that I am like this mushroom, similar to champignon, which is poisonous when you take him out of the ground and having tasted you consider it something else, I know that I have never been useful to anybody, but I haven’t been useful to myself as well. […] Thank you for your friendly help which you deliver to the weak. […]"

The Poznań newspaper "Tygodnik Literacki" publishes a  review of the recent works by Chopin (opuses 43 – 49), conducted by Marceli Antoni Szulc concluded (March 14) with the reflection: "Just like […] there is no Pole who wouldn’t know several historic songs by heart, time will come when Chopin’s compositions will be present in the nation because they are familiar, purely Polish."
