The Dedication to Regine Schlegel, if there can be such a thing during my lifetime, could very well be used in the front of a small collection of Friday-discourses but properly belongs to the writings on my work as an author. Inasmuch as I appear so decisively in the character of the religious, which I have wanted from the very beginning, at this moment she is the only important one, since my relationship to her is a God-relationship.
The dedication could read:
To R.S. — with this little book is dedicated an authorship, which to some extent belongs to her, by one who belongs completely to her.
Or with a collection of Friday-discourses: this little book is dedicated to R.S.
To a contemporary,
whose name must still be
concealed, but history will
name — for a short time or long —
as long as it names my name
with this little book
the whole of the authorship, as it
was from the very beginning.
