Happy Birthday to Engels

26 November 1884
BG A7/296

Karl Kautsky made a drawing and Eduard Bernstein wrote a verse on this happy birthday letter to their colleague Friedrich Engels on 26 November 1886: 'Es gratuliren dem Fritze Engels/zwei verrufene Züricher Bengels/Der Eine von Beiden ist kein Christ/der Andre nicht mal ein Jude ist.' (Two notorious rascals from Zurich/congratulate Freddy Engels/One of them was never christened/the other one is not even a Jew.)
