Some days ago, despairing of any opportunity to finish the work, I sent you a letter giving it up, with my apologies. But now the political circumstances on which I am so extremely dependent are suddenly changing again in radical fashion. First of all, the exceptional security measures in St. Petersburg, about which I read today in the Russian papers, are to remain in force until September 4, 1914, evidently meaning that the paper for which I was writing is slopped until then. Secondly, the war will, it seems, interrupt a number of urgent political affairs with which I was burdened. Therefore I could now set about continuing the article on Marx which I have begun, and could probably finish it soon. If you have not yet placed the order with someone else, and commissioned another author, please reply by cable to me (at my expense): Uljanow. Poronin. Rabotaite.
If you have already commissioned someone else, please reply by postcard.
With assurances of my deep respect,
Absender: Wl. Uljanow, Poronin (Galizien), Austria.
