Dear Comrade,

Many thanks for the detailed information.

I am busy here on February 25 and 26.

So will you please fix the day for the lecture yourself, either before the 25th or after the 26th, and let me know beforehand?[1] I would also ask you very much to write to Lausanne, so that I could have done with the lot in 2 days, i.e., lecture in Lausanne either on the evening before Geneva, or on the day after Geneva.

I accept the subject: “‘Conditions of Peace’ (in quotation marks) and the National Question”. So this is the agreed subject. All the best. Regards to V. K. and all our friends.


There is a convenient train: it arrives in Geneva at 9.15 p.m. Is it all right if I come by this train? If not, then can I lecture in Lausanne the evening before? Please!


[1] In Geneva, Lenin read a lecture, “‘Conditions of Peace’ in Connection with the National Question”, on March 1, 1916. It was attended by 200 persons. The Institute of Marxism-Leninism of the C.P.S.U. Central Committee has no information on the lecture at Lausanne.
