Thanks for the newspapers. Within the next few days I shall send you Iskra No. 2—also strictly in secret.

Could you make an inquiry at the Nakanune[2] office. A sum of money and three postage stamps were sent there (in the name of Dr. K. Lehmann) as far back as October31 to pay for the mailing of the paper. But not a word has been heard from them since then!

Please send me a copy of the protest against the drafting of students for military service. It would be interesting to   compare it with the article on the subject in Iskra No. 2.[1]

Alexei promises to come soon.


Excuse the brevity of this letter: I’ve a heap of petty things to attend to.
