With autogr. address. - In German, to C. Beschorner, "candidate of divinity" in Halle/Saale: "I shall be most happy to compose the article, 'gymnastics, gymnast, etc.' for O. Wigand's encyclopaedia, but as I do not own said work, and saw only the first installments at Leipzig some years ago, I would request you to send me a copy of one of the later volumes, as I will then find it easier to keep within the limits [...]". - Slightly browned and with small tear in fol. 2 (from broken seal); traces of folds and slight edge defects, otherwise well-preserved. - Includes three First Day Covers with First Day stamps commemorating Jahn's 200th birthday, one envelope with commemorative First Day stamp, and a stamp commemorating the 150th anniversary of the 1832 Hambach Festival.
