Maria Ilyinichna Ulyanova,
Davydov’s House, Apt. 4,
January 12, 1910
I have just received your letter and hasten to scribble an answer because I am afraid I shall be busy for the next few days. I will try to get some information about the man in German Switzerland. If this is needed in a hurry let me know exactly when I must find him by, so that the organisers can begin looking for him themselves (in the event of my not finding him).
I have received the statistics. A big merci!
Give Anyuta very best regards from me. Mark, too.
I embrace Mother fondly and hope she is well.
How are you? What is the winter like? It is warm here. I have begun to pay more attention to the theatre; I have seen Bourget’s new play La barricade. Reactionary but interesting.
All the best,
 Lenin meant that he would be attending the Plenary Meeting of the C.C. of the R.S.D.L.P. held January 2-23 (January 15- February 5), 1910, in Paris; it was known as the “Unity Plenum”.
