Carta de Engels a Marx, 1857:
He dicho que te envien una caja de vino, que le hará mucho bien a tu mujer. van seis botellas de Burdeos , tres de Oporto y tres de Sherry.
Carta de Jenny Marx a Engels….Londres, 31 Julio 1857:
Dear Mr Engels,
The wine has just arrived. The children’s exultation knew no end. The girls examined the bottles very closely and found the sherry settled in green and the port in pale lilac. The Bordeaux cheers us with its red smile. Tussy [Eleanor] set to work at once on the hamper and now she is sitting in it as in a little hut packed in straw and hay. Let me convey to you, dear Mr Engels, our warmest thanks for your great kindness. I am so weak and wasted. The wine will do me a world of good.
Carta de Jenny Marx a Engels….Londres, 14 agosto 1857:
The wine suits me splendidly. The sherry is truly excellent. The port seems not quite so good, but I like it particularly on account of its sweetness. It will put me to rights again.
With warm regards, Jenny Marx
