Dear Radek,

Thanks for the bulletin.[1]

We shall discuss the money question with Grigory. We’re hard up just now!

But the most important thing is: why are you silent about our (your final) draft resolution[2]? I must have it at once (and our statement on the voting for the manifesto)!

You should have a copy! Why don’t you send it to me?

Or Grimm? Can he really be refusing to let you make a copy? Please reply.

Grimm’sloyalty” is only so much talk. He has deliberately failed to mention Borchardt—it’s a disgrace.[3]

[3] The official report on the Zimmerwald Conference, carried in the first issue of Bulletin der Internationale Sozialistische Kommission zu Bern, did not say that Borchardt had signed the draft resolution of the Left.
