Paris, March 1, 1848
Good and loyal Marx,
The soil of the French Republic is a field of refuge and asylum for all friends of liberty.
Tyranny exiled you, now free France opens its doors to you and to all those who are fighting for the holy cause, the fraternal cause of all the peoples.
Every agent of the French government must interpret his mission in this sense.
Member of the Provisional Government
