Philomaths & Filarets

  • 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.
