Dear Engels,

Thursday the 2nd April is the day fixed for the marriage. Could You not manage to rid yourself of all “duties” for that day & come over to London. Your friend  Gottfried Ermen.
does not, I am sure, stick to business so closely as yourself, but is on the spree often enough, why should not You for once take a day for yourself or rather, give a day to Your | friends in London?

 Paul Lafargue.
has written to You & urged all due reasons why You should do so & why You should not do otherwise, I have, therefore, nothing more to add than that I should be delighted to see You on the day of my marriage & very disappointed if You did not come.

I am, dear Engels,
very sincerely Yours
Laura Marx.
