Dear Comrade Olga,
I am afraid to write to V. K., because “hurry-up” letters make his nervous illness even worse. But what is happening to No. 44? Or has the Kuzmikha woman turned definitely against us? I was in a terrible hurry to get No. 44 finished, had no time to correct the articles, didn’t see the proofs— and there it is—stuck. And Kuzma was demanding the pamphlet by the week before last!
Drop me a line, please, whether there is any hope of issuing both 44 and the pamphlet. When will the one and the other be ready? There’s need to add to and amend a few things in the pamphlet. It’s essential to have proofs.
Greetings to V. K.
P.S. How do you like Peuple? Solid for Vandervelde!
