I thank you for your letter of February 24. Of course I agree, on behalf of my organisation (the paper Vperyod and the Russian Bureau of the Committees of the Majority of the Social-Democratic Labour Party of Russia), to accept your conditions and promise to carry them out. The receipt for the sums of £60 and £20, with indication of their destination, will be printed in our paper Vperyod.
I must apologise for my bad English.
Yours very sincerely,
 During the 1904 strikes in Russia, Russian Social-Democratic organisations in London set up a Russian Strike Relief Commit tee, which appealed to British trade unions for assistance. It was also decided to turn to the Labour Representation Committee, of which Ramsay MacDonald was secretary. The Committee responded, on condition that part of the money be used to help the widows and orphans of the numerous victims of the January 9 (22), 1905, massacre.
