Dear L. B.,
I am writing at the meeting. It’s going wonderfully. It will be no less significant than the 1912 January Conference. There will be resolutions on all important issues, unity included.
We are all terribly sorry you are not here and have not been able to come.
I am sending the 1st resolution. For the time being keep it a secret; only get the backing ... some of the Bolsheviks, who can hold their tongues.
A happy New Year,
All the resolutions are being adopted unanimously....
We shall be through in 2–3 days.
