The reunion with Chopin took place in 1835, in Dresden, after the meeting of Chopin and his father at Carlsbad; during the following months, while being separated, they envisage a marriage. They meet again at Marienbad, then at Dresden; at the departure of Frederic, a kind of agreement is concluded between him and Teresa Wodzinska. At the beginning of the year 1837, a new meeting is envisaged, but this does not materialize. An informal break took place by mail exchange, confirmed in the following September.
