Dear P. B.,

I saw Zagorskaya only yesterday; she passed on to me something from you.

Please send us the article (on Liebknecht) as soon as it is copied out. From what Zagorskaya said I could not get an idea of the exact size of the article, but size is, after all, not the main consideration: we can always make room, and it will always be a pleasure to do so, for your article.

As regards the lady from Paris who is going to South Russia in a month’s time, and wants recommendations. I think the best thing to do is to introduce her to my sister, who is now in Paris and will be staying there another three weeks, if not more. If you agree with this plan, let us know this lady’s name and address, and also write some little note to present to her on your behalf (if that should be necessary). Send it either to me, or to my sister (103 Rue de la Glacière. M-lle Loukachevitsch, Paris. For Blank).

I hear that you have sent a cushion and an English journal over here. To what address, and for whom, if it was marked postlagernd[1] ? Zagorskaya could tell me nothing about this.

All the very best,

P.S. I enclose a copy of our statement for America.[2] We don’t want to circulate it here—at any rate, certainly not until it has appeared in Russia in sufficient quantities (and we have had no news yet from Russia about this). We have thought, therefore, of sending the statement at present only to you and to G. V., but if you think it essential to send it to America without waiting for news from Russia, then of course do so.



[1] Poste restante.—Ed.

[2] The statement on Iskra’s publication whose draft and final text were written by Lenin (see present edition, Vol. 4, pp. 320–30, 351–56). The idea was to send it to the Russian Social-Democratic Society in New York of which S. M. Ingerman was secretary (see p. 46).
