Kolberg was in Głuszyn in 1865, he was hosted by the Sokołowski family. Michał Sokołowski, just as Antoni Robert Morzycki from Ruszkowo, was raising money for Kolberg’s monograph on Kujawy. Their contact did not come to an end after his departure. Members of the Sokołowski family sent letters to Kolberg; these contained proverbs and small notes about their dialect. In his response, Kolberg thanked them and gave his best regards to Mrs Sokołowska, who, as he wrote, enriched his material “with numerous details”.

In Głuszyn Kolberg collected, among other pieces, a fairy tale about the shepherd and brigands.
