6. VI. 10

Dear Comrade,

I enclose herewith two appeals concerning the May Day demonstrations published by our Party, one abroad, the other in Russia; the latter was printed in an underground printery. I shall try to get other publications of this kind for you, although this is extremely difficult considering the position of our Party.

Regarding the proposals, resolutions and the report of our Party, I deeply regret to have to inform you that our Central Committee has not yet drafted the resolutions and that the report, unfortunately, is not yet ready.[1]

Accept, dear comrade, my cordial greetings.

N. Lenin


[1] A reference to draft resolutions and proposals relating to the agenda of the Eighth International Socialist Congress in Copenhagen, and to the report of the R.S.D.L.P.

The report was published in French in pamphlet form under the title “Rapport du Parti socialiste-démocrate ouvrier de Russie au VIII-e Congrès Socialiste International à Copenhague (28 août–3 septembre 1910)”—(Report of the Russian Social-Democratic Labour Party to the Eighth International Socialist Congress in Copenhagen [August 28–September 3, 1910]).
