The committee has been appointed for Saturday, 26.XI at 10 a.m. in the Burgvogtenhalle. Be there at 9.45 so as to see Huysmans and Plekhanov (I have written to both about   you[1] ). No later! Better earlier so as to arrange everything.

You are the national secretary. No one but you and Plekhanov has the right to receive admission cards.

Since I wrote about you to Huysmans (I gave him your official name—Kameneff—and also your address and real name), there is no need to show your mandate.

Get Malecki at least to come as your suppléant,[2] but let him not take the floor when you are there and speak only on Polish questions. Mention this only to Huysmans.

I am sending two mandates for the delegation—take your choice.

A detailed letter on the tasks of the delegation, votes, and the rest has been sent to Troyanovsky for forwarding to Yuri (Bekzadian. Bolleystra&Bwhatthe;e. 4. Zurich).

We cursed you roundly for your silence, but now peace!

Ask Rubanovich when you have a chance whether Plekhanov spoke about uniting with the Socialist-Revolutionaries.


For the trip: 40 frs. per lecture+50. The Committee of the Organisations Abroad is defraying the expense.
