They're no secrets. I've seen these in Chopin biographies.

Yep, and he's been also good at writing. A multi-talented guy, no doubts about it.

It's from the end of the manuscript for the orchestral score of the op. 2 variations (the manuscript currently resides in the Pierpont Morgan Library in NYC). What you see are a bunch of sketches of short passages, mostly unrelated to op. 2.

He seems to have been an excellent imitator also, and could fold his legs in his neck, and wasn't sure of his his French, so he asked Liszt to correct his letters. On one occasion, he and Alkan went to the theatre to see a comic play and on the way back they had to stop the carriage, because they had to get out and pee from laughter...
