Personal relations and correspondence between Russell and Lutoslawski are presented. The two philosophers were exchanging letters for nearly thirty years. Lutoslawski published some articles in English and Russell read them. Lutoslawski also knew several of Russell's publications, and he thought favorably of them. Despite deep philosophical differences between the two, each respected and studied the views of the other. In his letters Russell tended to emphasize the differences between their general opinions and philosophical approaches. Lutoslawski, on the other hand, highlighted similarities. As a result, although they had a lot in common, eg. dedication to social activity and education, a serious discussion between them was impossible due to messianic views of Lutoslawski and his metaphysics of eleuterism. Russell could not share such opinions. But he was glad to learn that Lutoslawski was impressed by his History of Western Philosophy, a book which met with much criticism.
