Dear Kugelmann

As I have an abscess on the right thigh which makes sitting for any length of time impossible, I am sending you the enclosed letter [1] for the Brunswick Comité, [2] Bracke [3] and Co, instead of writing twice. It would be best if, after reading it through, you could hand the letter over personally and remind them again that the information is confidential, not intended for the public.

2. Committee – Marx-Engels-Lenin Institute.

3. Wilhelm Bracke (1842-1880) – Active member of the German Social-Democratic movement. At first a Lassallean, later an Eisenacher. Stood close to Marx – Marx-Engels-Lenin Institute.
