Karl Marx in The Standard 1871

In this morning’s Standard your Paris correspondent translates from the Gazette de France a letter dated Berlin, April 28, 1871, and purporting to be signed by me. I beg to state that this letter is from beginning to end a forgery, quite as much as all the previous pretended letters of mine lately published in the Paris-journal and other French police papers. If the Gazette de France professes to have taken the letter from German papers, this must be a falsehood too. A German paper would never have dated that fabrication from Berlin.

I am, Sir, your obedient servant,

Karl Marx
