Dear Radek,

The letter to Wijnkoop has been sent.

Also the report with your letter to Grigory.

You probably have no copy of our statement (that we are dissatisfied with the manifesto, that it does not go far enough, etc.)? We handed it in to the Bureau, and Grimm read it out. We must absolutely have a copy of this statement. Would Grimm let you make a copy? If not, we’re stuck!

P.S. And Grimm’s “conspirative methods” too! The whole world already knows everything! And these stupid Italians in Avanti!. What a shame![1]



[1] Avanti! (Forward!)—a daily, the central organ of the Italian Socialist Party, founded in Rome in December 1896. Its No. 260 of September 19, 1915 carried an item, entitled “Il convegno Internationale di Zimmerwald” (International Conference at Zimmerwald), which, contrary to the secrecy agreed upon, gave all the particulars of the organisation of the conference and even carried a number of photographs of the house where it was held.
