With my closest friends - Tomasz Zan, Jan Czeczot
and others I set up a secret COMPANY OF PHILOMATHS
(Lovers of science) and next the COMPANY OF FILARETS
(Lovers of virtue). During the meeting at the
University of Vilnius on 3rd of October 1817 at 8 PM
a discussion will be conducted which is supposed to prepare youth for activities in various areas of life of the nation
devoid of its own nationhood.
