Letter to Lassalle in Berlin

London, 23 February 1859

Dear Lassalle,

I have today sent off the preface[1] to Duncker. Perhaps you would be good enough to ensure that I am sent the fee as soon as the manuscript has been printed. I would certainly not write to you about this point had it not become a question brûlante[2] due to unforeseen circumstances.

I hope to have a letter from you soon and, notwithstanding your coyness, something about ‘conditions in the homeland’, or at least the gossip there, this being essential for forming an opinion.
