Have just finished correcting the last sheet (49th) of the book [Volume I of Capital]. The appendix — Form of Value — in small print — takes up 1 1/4 sheets.
Preface ditto returned corrected yesterday. So, this volume is finished. I owe it to you alone that it was possible! Without your self-sacrifice for me I could not possibly have managed the immense labour demanded by the 3 volumes. I embrace you, full of thanks!
Enclosed 2 sheets of corrected proofs.
The £15 received with best thanks.
Salut, my dear, valued friend.
I do not need to have the corrected proofs back until the book is completely out.
