Dear A. V.,
I have received your letter. I am very glad that you are undertaking work for Proletary. This is absolutely necessary, particularly in regard to the subjects you mention+Italian letters. Mind you don’t forget that you are a contributor to a Party newspaper and don’t let those round you forget it.
All the very best.
P. S. Privately, about philosophy: I cannot return your compliments and I think you will soon take yours back. As for me, I have parted company (and probably for a long time) with the preachers of “the union of scientific socialism and religion” and with all Machists as well.
