Dear V. K.,

I am sending you Journal de Genève. It appears that I put it away somewhere before my departure and forgot about it. I’m awfully glad I have found it and not made myself look quite a pig in your eyes.

Re the C.O., Grigory advises having it published in Berne (this Is a double number, 4 pages on the conference of the Left), if there is no hope with regal!d to Kuzmikha. Drop me a line “to make assurance doubly sure” (as I am already well aware how helpless we all are where Kuzmikha is concerned).

About the lecture. I would like to read it about mid-October on the subject: “The International Socialist Conference of 5–8.1X.1915”. If suitable, we could organise it in advance (perhaps you could print bills for other towns, too, leaving a space for the town and the date). Could it bring in anything (I am devilishly hard up), is it opportune, etc.? Everyone (the Socialist-Revolutionaries, Nashe Slovo and others) will publish something about the conference, but I would go into details.

I am writing to Kharitonov in Zurich.[1]

Best regards,
Yours, Lenin

P.S. I am enclosing a letter for Socialist-Revolutionary “Yegor”. Please read it arid give it to him. If convenient, have a talk with him and let me know your opinion of him and his friends. What sort of people are they?
