Dear Library,

I should prefer it if the translation of the Address could appear in the Reform and the Rheinische Zeitung. It will, of course, be necessary to say that the original is in English, and it will do no harm if I am named as the author. The bourgeois papers are still holding it against us that of A. Lincoln’s replies to the various messages of congratulations on his re-election, only the reply to ours was more than a formal acknowledgment of receipt.
