Hamburgh; 21 May 1852.
2pp., 12mo. 27 lines. E. H. Sieveking was the son of Amalie Sieveking's brother Edward, who in his youth had settled in England as a merchant. In the letter she requests her nephew's assistance in the case of Miss Lempfert, 'as you are her only personal acquaintance in London'. She writes: 'I hope, you will remember her; but to help your memory, I will mention to you, that during your stay at Hamburgh she was living with her friend, Emma Poel [(1811-1891), her future biographer, see below]. If I am not mistaken, you had once or twice an interesting conversation with her.
