Dear N. A.,

We must meet as soon as possible to talk about the speediest convocation of a meeting of Bolsheviks (anti-Vperyodists). Yesterday Mark+Lozovsky+Lyova departed with a protest against a factional newspaper.[2] The funny fellows! I am glad that the muddlers are out of it, but we must speedily ascertain the attitude of the remaining people. If possible come out as quickly as you can and take steps for an early meeting.



[1] Semashko, Nikolai Alexandrovich (1874–1949)—prominent Soviet statesman. Member of the Bolshevik Party since 1893. Took an active part in the revolution of 1905–07. Was arrested in 1907 by the Swiss authorities; on his release from prison he moved to Paris, where he was secretary of the Bureau Abroad of the Central Committee of the Bolshevik Party.

[2] Here and lower down ^^(see pp. 430–31 and 432)^^ the reference is to arrangements for publishing abroad the Bolshevik newspaper Rabochaya Gazeta.
