I strongly advise rewriting the end of your article (Lemberg) , etc. (dropping here into pathos is bad—it strikes a wrong note).

Add answer to No. 2 (Izvestia) by points of reconciliation in the “O.C.” between the French social-chauvinists and German social-chauvinists (especially), Bund chauvinism (the crook Ionov) and the Caucasian crooks (for “unity” with An!!) (Note or P.S.).

Nadya is extremely surprised that you do not return her the needed (for the C.O.) letter and do not answer!??!

I intend to demand that the answer to Trotsky concerning the Chkheidze group be voted on the Editorial Board of Kommunist.[1] Let them turn it down!
(Then in Sotsial-Demokrat)

Reverting to the trip: from Schüpfheim to Luzern there is also a descent—you can probably make it without pedalling!

I am sending 3 things for the C.O. Who is going to get in touch with the printing shop? Write.


[1] This refers to Lenin’s article “Have the Organising Committee and the Chkheidze Group a Policy of Their Own?” (see present edition, Vol. 22, pp. 131–36).—Ed.
