A Mr. G. Koukline 15. Rue de Candolle. Genéve.
I am extremely worried about the fate of a certain packet of documents of historical significance. It was among the papers left in your keeping about which the editor of an historical journal spoke to you this summer.
I would be very much obliged to you if you would drop me a line letting me know whether the packet can be located and sent here; where the suitcase or box is and whether the packet can be easily found there.
With Social-Democratic greetings,
Address: St. Petersburg.
Railway Administration, Fontanka, at Obukhov
Bridge. Ivan Nikolayevich Chebotaryov.
