Maria Alexandrovna Ulyanova,
April 30, 1900
I have received your letter and Manya’s of the 25th, Mother dearest. I shall probably get away from here earlier, in something like a fortnight from now, but I cannot say anything at all definite.
I think I wrote telling you I had asked permission to spend six weeks in Ufa. I hope to receive an answer soon.
Nadya writes that her health is improving. She has not received Archiv from Anyuta. Here is something I should like to ask Anyuta to do—can she get back that “Archiv” before I arrive and not send it to Nadya, because I now need it (I could take it to Nadya myself) and the second copy that I expected never reached me. I should very much like to have it when I visit you.
Ask Manyasha to send me Nadya’s translation. I will send it to the journal.
Filippov writes that even from the article against Skvortsov the censor has thrown out almost a third! That is really too bad!
Many kisses for you and regards to all.
 It is not known which translation this refers to.—Ed.
 On April 20, 1900, Lenin applied to the Director of the Police Department for permission to live in Ufa for six weeks on account of the illness of his wife. The petition was refused.
