Since my sentiments have nothing in common with this delay – please accept these words as if they had arrived on time. If the enclosed sheet of paper is not too crumpled, and an opportune occasion is at hand, would you be so kind as to present it to Mrs. Mendelssohn. Let me remind you that even if you do possess friends and admirers worthier and closer to you, none is more sincere than I. Always whole – heartedly devoted. Chopin” - From a letter by F.
