Dear Comrade,

Here is our new address.[1] Send everything to it, please. We have taken the premises for a month. On Thursday (Feb. 17) I am giving the first lecture here (“Two Internationals”), and after a while, the second (“Conditions of Peace and the National Question”, or something of that kind).

Please write and tell me when it will be possible to give a lecture (the first, or both?) in Geneva, and whether the cost can be covered. How much will it yield net, as a minimum? I have to know this, because I am very short of money, and I must calculate as carefully as possible whether I should travel from here (at greater expense) or later on from Berne (I can stay more than a month here, if I like it). I shall await detailed and authoritative instructions from you. Perhaps you would drop a line to Lausanne, too, to find out whether it is worth while going there for an evening?

Best wishes, and regards to V. K. and all our friends.

V. U.

Nadya sends warm greetings.
