4.V. 02

Owing to completely unexpected and unforeseen circumstances, we received your letter only yesterday and there fore could not reply earlier. We have heard nothing from our delegate about the “agreed place”. It would therefore be more expedient for you to take steps directly to deliver the leaflet to the committees.[1] Evidently one of our people has been taken. So far we are not printing anything about the Belostok arrest. To speed up things in important matters we would earnestly ask you to pass on all information   through the comrade in Paris (Leiteisen), sending us (to the address: Herrn Philipp Rögner. Cigarrenhandlung. Neue Gasse. 44. Nürnberg) either a copy of the statements handed to the Paris comrade, or a brief summary.

For the Editors of Iskra,


[1] A reference to a May Day leaflet which the Belostok conference of R.S.D.L.P. committees and organisations decided to put out. It was based on a draft drawn up by the Editorial Board of Iskra (see KPSS v rezolutsiyakh..., Part 1, 1954, pp. 28–31).
