Tuesday, Geneva

Dear L. I.,

As regards my lecture, I think that it should be arranged for Saturday. Yesterday I spoke in Lausanne, today here, and the discussion here is planned for the day after tomorrow.[1] Please try to do everything you can to make arrangements for no later than Saturday; I first thought of having the talk on Friday, but they say Saturday is better. It is most important for me to have it over and done with as soon as possible, and if there is to be discussion I think it should be on Sunday, no later. I still have to go to Zurich to speak there.

I am thinking of leaving at 12.45 on Friday which would get me to you after 4. I shall come from the station to your place. Please reply at once whether the lecture has really been arranged for Saturday.

Best regards,


[1] Lenin is referring to his lectures in Lausanne and Geneva on November 10 and 11, 1902, on the programme and tactics of the Socialist-Revolutionaries,
