Sample text

T h e day before yesterday I was called on by a former schoolfellow, a grammar school teacher, 3 who's been thoroughly bitten although he's had no contact whatever with communists. If we could bring direct influence to bear on the people, we'd soon get the upper hand, but such a thing is virtually impossible, especially since we writers have to keep quiet if we're not to be nabbed. Otherwise it's safe enough here, no one bothers much about us so long as we keep quiet, and it seems to me that Hess' fears are little more than phantoms.

3 The ensuing discussion lasted until one o'clock. T h e subject is a tremendous draw. All the talk is of communism and every day brings us new supporters. The Wuppertal communism is une vérité? indeed, already almost a force. You have no idea how favourable the soil is here. T h e most stupid, indolent, philistine people, hitherto without any interest in anything in the world, are beginning almost to rave about communism. How long it will still be tolerated I do not know, but the police at any rate are completely at a loss, themselves not knowing where they stand, and just at a time when the chief swine, the District President, is in Berlin.

In the course of this work Engels kept in constant touch Preface XXXVII with Marx who also read the articles before mailing them to the USA.
