February 3, 1911

Dear Comrade,

I received your letter about Singer today, and passed it on to a comrade who promised to send a telegram (I myself have a touch of the flu). By the way, on December 18, I sent you a letter from Huysmans and my draft reply.[1] Your reply seems to be such a long time in arriving! Send me back Huysmans’s letter, at least.

The Duma group informs us that the liquidators made a new attack after Jordansky’s note in No. 4 of Zvezda. The liquidators were backed by Smirnov, Martov’s brother, Cherevanin and others.

Veselovsky, Chernyshov, Lositsky were against.

Poletayev (who wrote to me about it) says that there is no doubt that they have won, i.e., that the liquidators’ attack has been beaten off.

Best wishes,


[1] Lenin’s draft reply to Camille Huysmans’s letter has not been found.
