The letter ł

This page is taken from the Polish Declarations of Admiration and Friendship for the United States.  It is a presentation of the first 13 manuscript volumes of a larger collection of 111 volumes compiled in Poland in 1926 and delivered to President Calvin Coolidge at the White House to honor the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. Richly illustrated with original works by prominent Polish graphic artists, the collection includes the greetings and signatures of national, provincial, and local government officials, representatives of religious, social, business, academic, and military institutions, and approximately 5 ½ million school children. This searchable online presentation is a complete facsimile of the six oversized presentation volumes and the seven volumes of secondary school signatures. If you click on the page you will see listed:

Merłowicz M.

I also found this...

Merłowicz - w grupie nazwisk pochodzących od podstawy marl-, marł-, por. z-marły, marlić się ‘dostawać zmarszczek’. 

Merłowicz - in the group of surnames from the basis of marl, mar-, por-z-marły, marry 'get wrinkles'.
