Warsaw. Fryderyk Chopin writes a letter to Jan Białobłocki: "... I am sending to you my Mazurka [early, in G major or in B-flat major] about which you know. Next you can send me the other one, it would be too much fun at once. It has already been sent to the world; when my Rondo [Op. 5] […] is suffocating in the papers. [...] The winter and sledging is very good […]"

A gossip about death
The newspaper "Kurier Warszawski" publishes correction of a written information about Chopin’s death. Next day Mikołaj Chopin writes a letter to his son: "My dear Child, my Dearest, no letter was more desired and awaited impatiently than the one we have just received! The reason was that for three weeks a gossip is spread here about your serious illness […] Finally this unhappy message has reached us coincidentally, just before Easter […] Finally the apprehension is gone, you are healthy, everything is forgotten." He also suggests meeting of Fryderyk and his mother in summer in Dresden.
