Bingen, 1 June 1849

Dear Weydemeyer,

I beg you in my own and Freiligrath’s names to take the printer of Freiligrath’s poem [Freiligrath’s ‘Abschiedswort der Neuen Rheinischen Zeitung’ published in the newspaper’s last number, 19 May 1849, printed in red ink] to court for piracy and sue him for damages.

My general attorney is St. A. Naut in Cologne, and I should be much obliged if you would write to him about this matter.

Vale faveque.'

K. Marx
