Dear L. B.,
Hanecki is with me just now. He is arranging for a general protest in regard to the Basle delegation.
Sign it (you and all the Basle delegates) and send it to
1) Schklowsky. Falkenweg. 9. Bern
2) Yuri—Bekzadian. Bolleystr. 4. Zürich
3) the Troyanovskys, and have him sign all the papers and return them here.
All the delegates should sign.
 This refers to the, protest of the R.S.D.L.P. delegation at the Basle Congress against the improper action of the Secretariat of the International Socialist Bureau, who had declared that the delegates of the R.S.D.L.P. had no right to endorse the mandates of the Polish opposition delegates at the Basle Congress and that the five delegates of the Polish opposition sitting in would figure in the Congress report under an “X” sign.
