Dear G. V.,
I have been unwell again these days and that is why I did not answer you. The Breshkovskaya item received, but too late to go in the current issue. It will go in the next.
Are you writing about collective liability? (I have asked that S.-Peterburgskiye Vedomosti be sent to you.) It would be a good thing to have an article on the subject for the next issue. The visitor has left. I do not know whether it will be possible to settle the affair. At any rate I got him to agree to mediation by the O. C.
P.S. You don’t say anything about my pamphlet. Please send it to the printers as soon as possible: it is most important not to hold it up. It can be read later in the proofs, if anyone else is interested, not in the manuscript.
