Dear V. K.,

I am sending you the proof-sheets.

Will Olga please answer my postcard of yesterday in greatest possible detail.

Do me a favour—get to know (from Stepko or Mikha, etc.) the name of “Koba” (Joseph J.....?? we have forgotten). Very important!!

Would you buy me (out of C.O. expenses) Romain Rolland’s pamphlet: Au dessus de la m&ehat;lée?

Or is it unobtainable in Geneva?

All the very best,

Thanks for the Appeal to Reason[1] you have sent me!!

Send it more often!


[1] Appeal to Reason—newspaper of the American socialists, founded in Girard, Kansas, in 1895; was not connected officially with the Socialist Party of America, but propagated socialist ideas and enjoyed great popularity among the workers. Eugene Debs, the American socialist, wrote for the paper.
