Radek has no grounds whatever for taking offence, and this should be explained to him calmly and at length. You should arrange the meeting with him as quickly as possible (without waiting for me) (in order to reassure him). You can certainly represent the C.C. at this meeting, as you generally represent the C.C. in Berne. We have long been corresponding about your conferring with Radek in regard to the theses.

The situation is what it was before Zimmerwald: we have our own “resolutions”, but we do not reject a Left bloc.

I shall try to come straight to Kienthal (try to find out the name of the hotel—there are only two or three of them there).

I’m terribly angry at not having received Junius!

Salut, Lenin
