Dear Colleagues,

Thank you very much for twice sending the newspaper in time, i.e., simultaneously with all the bourgeois papers. But apart from these two occasions, Za Pravdu always comes half a day later than the bourgeois papers. Can’t this be altered, and the paper always be sent at the proper time, so that it comes at the same time as the bourgeois press?

Best greetings!



P.S. What is the circulation now? Will there ever be (at last!!) a financial report? As regards legality, your secretary is wrong in his last letter: much can and should still be done in the sense of increasing the paper’s legality.

How many subscribers are there now?


[1] Za Pravdu (For Truth)—one of the names under which the Bolshevik paper Pravda appeared from October 1 (14) to December 5 (18), 1913. Altogether 52 issues appeared; 24 were confiscated and for 2 the editors were fined.

The financial report referred to in the letter was printed in No. 9 of Za Pravdu, October 13.
