I am sending the proofs and new copy. This issue must carry a report on the London Conference.
For God’s sake do everything you can to speed it up. (If you cannot put it out before our meeting), then be sure to bring the proofs along with you (especially the articles on defence of the fatherland).
N.B. The material on Martov is to be held up.
Don’t forget!! i.e., don’t put it in. ]]
 The article “More on Martov” was published in the newspaper Sotsial-Demokrat No. 41 on May 1, 1915.—Ed.
 This refers to the Conference of the R.S.D.L.P. Sections Abroad, held in Berne from February 27 to March 4, 1915. Convened on Lenin’s initiative, it was essentially a general conference of the Party. The main item on the agenda was the question of the war and the tasks of the Party, on which Lenin made a report.
All the basic resolutions and preambles to them were drafted by Lenin. They were published in the newspaper Sotsial-Demokrat and as addenda to Lenin’s pamphlet Socialism and War published in Russian and German. The resolutions of the Berne Conference were also published as a leaflet in French, which was distributed among the delegates of the Zimmerwald Socialist Conference and sent to the Left elements among the international Social-Democrats. For the Conference resolutions see present edition, Vol. 21, pp. 158–64.
