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[3]—and about Zgr.[2] ?).



[1] This is a postscript to Krupskaya’s letter.—Ed.

[2] Zgragen.—Ed.

[3] 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.
