Summary/Abstract: The research material of this study consists of selected fragments of epistolography of Alojzy Feliński, a poet who created at the turn of the 18th and 19th century. The analysis is devoted to selected letters which the poet wrote to Michał Wyszkowski, Adam Jerzy Czartoryski, Jan and Waleria Tarnowski and Franciszek Rudzki. The aim of the article is to draw attention to the value of material goods in Feliński’s life. A poetic type of argumentation was observed in the study, which – often indirectly – revealed the poet’s attitude towards money. Taking into account the historical and biographical context, as well as the persuasiveness of the words of the Volyn poet, the study aims to explain Feliński’s common sense thinking about both money and material goods.
