Make Preface explaining the origin of the Book enough to interest the reader without divulging the whole process – a page of "Zanoni". Do not show this to the Sinnetts; keep more to yourself. Better go with them to Elberfeld. A month there outside the opposing influences will do more than six in Brooklyn by yourself.

K.H. (by order)
