Dear Comrade,

We received your article yesterday evening and have not had time yet to read and discuss it.

There is very little time left to write and send you a message by hand. So please excuse me for being so brief. There is no news from Russia. You will see what the state of affairs is from Nos. 35 and 36.[1]

We do not have Sovremenny Mir.

There is only 1 copy of Nasha Zarya in Berne, sorry we can’t send it.

As regards Golos,[2] etc., it seems you are not fully in formed. Read the whole of Golos.

We are unable to send you a set. We shall try to get the Parisians to do something about it, although it is not easy.

We have not seen Parvus!

Best regards from me, Nadezhda Konstantinovna and the whole Berne crowd.

N. Lenin

P.S. I enclose a letter to your wife.[3]


[1] Of Sotsial-Demokrat.—Ed.

[2] Golos (Voice)—a Menshevik daily, published in Paris from September 1914 to January 1915, when it was closed down by the French Government.

[3] This refers to Krupskaya’s letter to Mrs. A. L. Ryazanova asking the latter to notify the Austrian women socialists of the proposed convocation of the International Socialist Women’s Conference.
