Dear L. B.,
I am sending you the set of Proletary (Nos. 1–20) which you asked for.
I have reread some of them. Do not forget to insert a whole chapter on the Popular Socialist liquidators (from Two Parties) in your legal pamphlet. (Peshekhonov, Nos. 7 and 8 of Russkoye Bogatstvo, 1906—cf. Proletary No. 4, “Socialist-Revolutionary Mensheviks”. )
People now have forgotten everything. The novices know nothing.
Begin at the beginning and tell all about liquidationism (and the “legal party”) among the Popular Socialists.
 See present edition, Vol. 11, pp. 197–206.—Ed.
 This apparently refers to L. B. Kamenev’s pamphlet The Essence of Liquidationism which was to have been put out by the Priboi Publishers.
