A letter from the Polish poet Adam Mickiewicz to the head of a French college at which he once worked is to be auctioned – and is expected to fetch at least 100,000zł.
The previously unknown letter was written to Jean Antoine Letronne, president of the College de France, on April 26, 1841. Mickiewicz gave lectures at the college between 1840 and 1844. In the letter, written in French, Mickiewicz apologies for being unable to deliver a lecture the following day, saying that he was suffering from flu.
