"You have promised me to read these stories and I would recommend you to begin with ""The Last of the Mohicans""-- then go on with ""Deerslayer"" and end with the ""Prairie"". I read them at your age in that order;[..] Thirty four years ago is a long long time to look back upon." Hence follows further comments about the language and content.

Notes
The works of Fenimore Cooper were available in this popular French series when Conrad was a small child. They were not at that stage translated into Polish and it is most likely therefore that Conrad as a child read them in French, though he later read them in English to his son Boris.
