I have received the article about the Swedish strike. It’s a very good one. I have sent it to Paris together with the end of my article on Bogdanov (which came to 100 lines —2 pages of Proletary in the supplement). I don’t know now whether you will approve it all. I leave it entirely to your judgement: I am so sick of writing this article that now I don’t know whether it wouldn’t be better to scrap the whole, and reply to Bogdanov literally in a couple of words about his scandal-mongering regarding the “property of the whole group”. It’s up to you!
I shall write about Plekhanov. The Swedish strike article should go in as the leader.
