It’s a fortnight ago today since I sent the manuscript [Contribution to Critique of Political Economy] to Berlin; since then 2 letters have gone off to Lassalle; up to this moment I've had no acknowledgment of receipt. Moreover, I had made this ‘acknowledgment of receipt’ a condition for the despatch of the preface. As you can imagine, one begins to lose all patience when everything goes so wrong. I am quite ill with vexation.
Herewith Lassalle’s letter. Let me have it back.
Today I have written about Bonaparte’s rotten speech and his pamphlet.
