"Cara Maria,
il grande Maestro che co`suoi ferri mi ha miracolato come si diceva nel Medio Evo, Mario Donati, va a Varsavia par un congresso insigne. Il mio sangue di Vergine e Martire ha consacrato i suoi ferri infallibili.
Egli pensa di passare, nel ritorno, da Praha. [...] Par la traduzioni mi rimette intieramente nelle Vostre mani. Lascio nelle Vostre mani i miei diritti che non hanno importanza. Quel che farete sara ben fatto. So che le Vostre traduzioni saranne ottime, amorosamente ottime. Mi basta."

"Dear Maria,
the great master who miraculously worked me with his tools, as they said in the Middle Ages, Mario Donati, is going to Warsaw for an illustrious congress. My blood of Virgin and Martyr has consecrated his infallible irons.
He plans to pass through Prague on his way back. [...] For translations, I am entirely in your hands. I leave in your hands my rights that don't matter. What you do will be well done. I know that your translations will be excellent, lovingly excellent. It is enough for me."
