Manchester, 28 January 1852

Dear Marx,

Enclosed the thing for The Times. All you have to write is:* Sir, I believe the publication of the scandalous facts contained in the annexed letter will contribute to throw some light upon the state of things on the Continent. The correctness of these facts I guarantee,* etc. Name and address.

Mine to The Daily News will be going off this evening by the second post; if you arrange matters similarly, both letters will arrive at the respective offices at almost the same time and thus may appear in Friday’s issue. But post the letter in Charing Cross; there is too much delay at the branch offices.

I return herewith the two letters from Cluss and Bermbach. The seal on your Saturday’s letter was once again in a sorry state; I enclose it herewith. What can be afoot?

In The Daily News I shall simply sign myself A German Merchant.

Write soon.

F. E.
