I am sending the pamphlet to Geneva (they agree to do 100,000 ems for 150 frs. and very quickly at that).

I have accepted practically all your amendments.

To your part I have made negligible ones: I shall send them to you in the proofs (if you want, we can ask for them earlier).

We must do all we can to speed up the issue of the C.O. Your article will have 375lines!!! No news items (practically). Will you write 112 a column on “War”? I’ll write about self-determination and a United States of Europe.[1] Go lay must go in the C.O. if the Japanese don’t agree to have it in Kommunist, for Golay must be boosted for all he’s worth![2]

Answer about the C.O. without delay, hurry as fast as you can.

Is it worth while putting in my article on Quarck?[3]

How could the draft declaration have got lost (it is condensed resolutions)?? It was in an envelope for you!!!

We shall ask Radek for it. [If you find it, return it without delay!!]

I am enclosing Varin and a letter to Yuri.


I have sent all my proofs back to Benteli.[4] If the letter has gone astray, let the proofs be sent again.
