Geneva, October 23, 1905
I have just been informed by Bracke of the French Parti Socialiste that their party congress will take place in Châlon-sur-Sâone from October 27–30 to November 1. Le meilleur accord est réservé aux dél’egués de l’Étranger.
Will you be there? Be sure to drop me a line. If you will, represent us and deliver without fail an exhaustive speech with greetings from the revolutionary Social-Democracy of Russia.
If not, let me know at once. In that case we shall send a detailed message of greetings from here.
So be sure to reply!
 Foreign delegates will be accorded the warmest welcome.—Ed.
 G. D. Leiteisen attended the First Congress of the United Socialist Party of France which opened on October 29, 1905, in Châlon. As a token of solidarity with the revolutionary proletariat of Russia he was included in the presidium and was unanimously applauded as he took his place on the platform. A telegram of greetings from Proletary was given a warm reception. The congress adopted a resolution moved by Paul Lafargue voicing solidarity with the Russian revolution.
