Dear Comrade,

Please send me immediately all the issues of Severnaya Pravda (except No. 1) and Novaya Rabochaya Gazeta.

I have not seen anything!!!

Ask Avel to send them to me daily by book-post from St. Petersburg, wrapped up in a couple of bourgeois news papers of a discreetly moderate and exceedingly quiet trend. Pending a reply from Avel, send me, please (when done with), Novaya Rabochaya Gazeta and Severnaya Pravda, and Nash Put, Moscow issue.[1]


P.S. A slight misunderstanding: you have not given Shklovsky your address for corresponding with you and getting information from you.

Abs. Ulianow. Poronin (Galizien).


[1] Nash Put (Our Way)—a legal workers’ newspaper published in Moscow. The first number appeared on August 25 (September 7), 1913. Lenin took an active part in the newspaper. On September 12   (25), 1913, the paper was closed down; altogether 16 numbers were issued. Moscow’s workers retaliated by a strike, but publication was not resumed.
