Georgi Valentinovich,

I am sorry that I am a day late with my article[1] ; I was not well yesterday and in general the work is going terribly hard these last few days.

The article turned out longer than I thought and had to be divided into two parts; in the second part I shall make a detailed analysis of Novobrantsev and draw conclusions.

I consider that my article should have a signature and so I am taking a pseudonym, otherwise, pending the announcement, it will probably be inconvenient for you.

Will you please also insert my statement[2] appended herewith in the issue of Iskra containing the announcement about the Congress. Of course, in the event of complete peace being established in the Party (which I am hoping for) and if you were to find it necessary, I could, among other peace terms, discuss also the non-publication of this statement.

Yours sincerely,
N. Lenin
