Dear Comrade Huysmans,
Many thanks for your kind letter. I shall pass on your reply to our comrades in Russia, and I hope that they will soon send you the remainder of our report. As for the payment of 1,600 frs., I may assure you that the Central Committee of our Party will pay this sum, most likely [not later] than within a few....
[The plenary meeting of the Central Committee] has been called, and I am obliged to await its decision. The money will assuredly be paid without delay.
Accept, dear comrade, my fraternal greetings.
