Poronin (Galizien), October 3, 1913
As a member of the Editorial Board of Iskra and Zarya, which, ten years ago, you rendered such valuable service, and as a representative of the Russian Social-Democratic Labour Party, which will never forget the fraternal assistance you gave it during this vital period of its upbuilding, I hasten to congratulate you most heartily on my own behalf and on behalf of the Central Committee of the Russian Social-Democratic Labour Party, on the occasion of your seventieth birthday.
I wish you long years of work for the benefit of inter national Marxism.
With Party greetings,
N. Lenin (Vl. Ulyanov)
