Dear G. L.,
Why don’t you answer about Samoilov (you must fix him up with some manual work—find some farmer in the environs or a market-gardener through the socialists—and about Zgr. ?).
 This is a postscript to Krupskaya’s letter.—Ed.
 On May 3 (N.S.), 1914, F. N. Samoilov wrote Lenin that he was in the Berne town sanatorium, and that the doctor—a specialist in nervous diseases—advised him to do a little manual work.
G. L. Shklovsky wrote to Lenin on May 12 that Samoilov had been fixed up with work in the open air.
