26.XII. 02

I am sending you No. 29 and “Urgent Issue”.[1] The two other pamphlets have not yet been found; the “library” here is a sorry spectacle and being in the commune has been affected by the disorder of the den.[3]

I wrote to G. V. yesterday about Zhizn and asked him to pass the letter on to you.[2]

You ought to meet Sanin (through G. V. or Lalayants). He is something of a misanthrope, and has fallen behind in every respect, but I believe he could write. It would be very useful to influence him, get him interested, and draw him into the work. Now he is translating Kautsky (Die soziale Revolution) for us.

Best regards....

I am also sending a manuscript, “A Page from the Life of a Young Revolutionary”. Please send it back yourself (only show it to G. V., to make sure it will not be lost) and let us know your opinion and vote.

[3] The living room shared by all in the London flat occupied by Vera Zasulich, Y. 0. Martov and I. S. Blumenfeld was called the “den” in jest because of the permanent disorder in it.
