Dear Comrade,

Our trip did not come off.[2] I don’t know whether you have got the letters. If you have, send me a reply to check whether the post is working. You may now find yourself, as an exception and an extremely rare one at that, an inhabitant of a non-belligerent country; so that if only the post from you to us functions, you must be sure to keep us informed, and send us information from the papers to which we have no access. Of course, only the most important information (particularly about Russia).

Let me know whether you will have (or whether you already have) any good contacts with Stockholm, and whether you can transmit letters, provide an address for money from Russia, etc.

V. I.[1]


[1] At the top of the letter Lenin wrote, evidently addressing himself to the landlord: “Geehrter Herr! Bitte diesen Brief an Herrn Kobezky gefälligst zu übergeben!” (“Dear Sir, please pass this letter on to Mr. Kobetsky!”)—Ed.

[2] An apparent reference to the trip to Brussels to attend a meeting of the International Socialist Bureau.
