Hello - I am new to the forum and I am not sure what I am doing (lol). I am writing a play about the ten days that marx and engels spent in paris at the beginning of their 40 year collaboration. the letters between the two following that meeting have been destroyed so i am writing about what i think happened based on extensive reading over the years about them. since this is part of the historical record (for the most part) do i have to work about copyright issues? Thanks - Dianne

You are more than fine.

They have been deep-sixed way beyond copyright protection.

You could have just googled!

Hi Dianne, welcome to the forum.

IMR is right - no copyright issues.

There are a lot of very smart people here so don't be afraid to ask questions or share a problem.
