There are plenty of ringing notes, including the melody E, to cover the slightly awkward jump of the 3rd finger.
This is an important point which is actually not clear in the edition above. I recommend downloading original ed from Boije (search Mertz op 4) and you will see the high E meas. 6 is actually a quarter note stem up, while c# a and g are stem down. So holding c# is not the point, melody conduction is e to d. Probably a typing mistake by the editor.
Thanks. I can't find that site. Could you provide a link to it?

Go to Boije's Collection on musikverket and after searching for Mertz op 4 you get this (click on the link in red circle to access the pdf):

I think I would play the end of measure 6 differently. After the open string d I think it might be easier to play the a and d with fingers 3 and 4, to have 1 for the f on the 6th string and 2 for the f on the 1st string.
