Dear V. K.,

I am sending you the text, received today (be sure to return it), of the government report concerning the arrest.

It must be inserted into the editorial (in lieu of what we sent you) and the words about our not, knowing whether the deputies were arrested or not, etc., should be thrown out.

Drop a line, if only by postcard (that you have received this).

When you can put out No. 34
and No. 35.

We must make great haste now: we have received extremely interesting material concerning a “statement” of the Organising Committee.[1]

For the time being this is a secret.

Delete the Georgian resolution.



[1] This refers to the speech by Y. Larin, delegate of the Menshevik Organising Committee, at the Congress of the Swedish Social-Democratic Party, which was held in Stockholm on November 23, 1914. See Lenin’s articles “The Kind of ‘Unity’ Larin Proclaimed at the Swedish Congress” and “What Next? (On the Tasks Confronting the Workers’ Parties with Regard to Opportunism and Social-Chauvinism)” (present edition, Vol. 21, pp. 415–17, 107–14).
