In French, to Jenny ("Mémé"), the daughter of her sister Jenny Caroline Longuet. A high-spirited letter, written two months after the death of Eleanor Marx: "It's a rotten spring this year, but I take comfort in the rain regarding my hat which gets visibly younger [...] Yes, the lilac dies, but there are red and white chestnut trees, golden rain from acacias and rosebuds. Especially for gourmands, like your uncle and yourself, there are the blushing strawberries [...] also I command you to come see and try [...]" (transl.).

Tears to folds, without loss to text.
