Letter to a comrade who had contacted her with publishing questions, in part (translated): "This poem is hardly suitable for publication. I would advise - if your time allows for it - to read our classic writings: Lassalle, Engels and Marx; you would certainly find many ideas and viewpoints. Right now, your essay to me seems to be based on solely warm feelings instead of clear concepts. That may also derive from the poetic form (of the essay). Having said that, I would be very pleased if you continued to dedicate yourself with the same enthusiasm to our good cause of socialism […]".

In fine condition, with a fragile central mailing fold, mild soiling, and a few pencil notations. Accompanied by three unsigned postcard photos.
