Dear Mikh. Nik.,
I received your postcard and two hundred francs, which I have forwarded to Zinoviev (I received 869 frs.=500 rubles from Petrograd), i.e., apparently the whole fee; unless part of it is payment for the agrarian work. It is very, very sad that intrigants are working next to the “boss” of the publications against publications!!...
My sincere regards,
 This refers to the fee for Imperialism, the Highest Stage of Capitalism and New Data on the Laws Governing the Development of Capitalism in Agriculture.—Ed.
 Maxim Gorky.—Ed.
