The article sums up the results of a thorough examination of the MS versions of Wladyslaw Mickiewicz book 'My Mother' (1926). Housed in the Polish Library in Paris, the handwritten original text contains a series of personal accounts of the character of Zofia Szymanowska. These characteristics not only include a number of details that were left out from the published version but also produce a rather different portrait of Zofia Szymanowska from the one we have been familiar with (especially when it comes to her critical view of the Towianski millenarians around Adam and Celina Mickiewicz). In his notebooks Wladyslaw Mickiewicz admits that he is in possession of parts of Zofia Szymanowska's 'Memoir' (the parts that were lost, probably destroyed by him) and even quotes from them (this is the first time this extract has come to light).
