27.I. 08

Dear Comrade Huysmans,

I have received your letter of January 24, 1908, and have written to Comrade Magnus Nilssen in Christiania[1]   that the Revel Committee of the R.S.D.L.P. does indeed exist and that the Estonian Social-Democrats belong to [our Party].[2] As for citizens [Jurisson] and Seppin, I do not know them, [and in general] I do not know a single Estonian Social-Democrat personally; it should not be for gotten that the organisations of our Party are secret. I shall write to Russia and ask for particulars about these citizens, but no immediate reply can be expected.

With fraternal greetings,
Vl. Ulyanov
