I am sending you Radek’s letter and his report.[2] Return the latter to him as soon as you can (with criticism: it’s weakish. Not a word about our pamphlet,[1] about defence of Nasha Zarya by Axelrod, etc.).

You have a lot of assistants—get them to make a copy of Radek’s report.

I am sending you the plan of leaflets: return as soon as possible.[3]

Best regards,

N.B. [[ __ _ _ ]]
Ask Inessa whether she took from me Journal de Genève[4] with an article by Romain Rolland! For God’s sake, search everything everywhere to find it.


[1] Socialism and War.—Ed.

[2] Apparently this refers to Radek’s report on the First International Socialist Conference in Zimmerwald.

[3] Enclosed with the letter was Zinoviev’s plan of leaflets which were to ha published by the Bureau Abroad of the C.C., R.S.D.L.P.

[4] Journal de Genève—a newspaper of a liberal trend founded in 1826.
