C also died early, who had taught me Russian and linguistics. He loved
the old city that had the beautiful towers and bridges.
In C‘s many works there was the essay “The Moon of Carpathians”. He wrote
that the conference was over, departed at Kiev, saw the moon and
churches over the Carpathian Mountains, impetuously went to the west,
passed Slovakia, Moravia, Bohemia, and at last reached “Golden Prague”. Prague, it was his youth itself.
Now I cannot hear his voice telling the various anecdotes on languages,
of which he freely had commanded. By the short heading, a newspaper
reported his death, naming as “the genius of linguistics”.
