Dear Citizen Huysmans,
You remember, of course, that the C.C. of the R.S.D.L.P., after the conference of the R.S.D.L.P. in January 1912, which restored our Party, appointed me the Party’s representative on the I.S.B.
Owing to my departure from Paris, I was obliged to ask Comrade Kamenev, who lives in Paris, to take my place. Cracow is too far away from Brussels, and I would ask you to enter Kamenev’s name and the official address of our Bureau in Paris in the Bulletin. Mr. Kouznetzoff (pour Kameneff). 102. Rue Bobillot. 102. Paris. XIII. Kamenev will spend some time here, but I would ask you not to indicate his address in Cracow. It would be imprudent for secrecy reasons.
In urgent cases I would ask you to write to my present address.
It being All Saints’ Day, your letter was delivered a little late.
