Dear Comrades,

I have received your letter concerning Borba Proletariata. [2] I shall do my best to write and shall tell my editorial comrades about it too. I am heavily occupied at present with work for the new organ. A detailed letter on this matter has already been sent to you. [1] Let us have your reply as soon as possible and please send more, more and still more, workers’ letters. The success of the organ depends now on you in particular, for the beginning is especially difficult.

N. Lenin
