Re “Bibliography and Notes”, I am for publishing them. What is an extra 100–200 (less) frs.?

The important thing is to have the issue all of a piece.[1] It is important to have voices from everywhere (Golay, Sinclair, Die Internationale) against the social-chauvinists.[2]

Are Yuri and the Japanese[3] going? When?


[1] This refers to No. 1 of the journal Kommunist.—Ed.

[2] This refers to: 1) Paul Golay’s pamphlet Le Socialisme qui meurt et le Socialisme qui doit rena&ihat;tre; 2) U. Sinclair’s article “A Manifesto Against It” in the pamphlet Socialism and War by Upton Sinclair and Richard Blatchford, and 3) the journal Die Internationale published by the German Left Social-Democrats in April 1915.

[3] The nickname “Japanese” was applied to G. L. Pyatakov and Yevgenia Bosh, who emigrated to America via Japan. Here the reference is to their departure for Norway.
