Pytania sa inteligentne, ale nazbyt 'ciekawe', ida za daleko. Odpowiedzi - z koniecznosci - dyplomatyczne, a wiec wymijajace z Polski nie sfinalizujemy tego. Mysle, ze jesli warto im 'dac wywiad', to juz podejmujac sprawy nieco gruntowniej. Moze zreszta sie myle. W kazdym razie bardzo dziekuje za propozycje i serdecznie pozdrawiam.” Translated: “Dear Prince Janie! I received questions and answers at the time of my visit. Questions are smart, but too 'interesting', too far. Responses - of necessity - diplomatic, and so evading from Poland we do not finalize this. I think if it is worth giving them an interview then they are already doing things a little bit more thoroughly. Maybe I'm wrong. Anyway thank you very much for the suggestions and cordially.” Mailing folds, paper clip impression, else good condition.
