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.

Salut.

Your

K. M.
