About the telegram from Yeniseisk[1] —it is necessary to get a reply by letter. It is impossible to print by guess work. We must get a letter.

I am not sure whether it’s worth while publishing the statement (on the Grimm affair). But if we publish it now, the text should be changed to a sharper tone.

I am sending you the German pamphlet of the 0. C. Return it.

I am sending my article. Figure out exactly how much material you now have altogether. We must decide about the   rest. (If Yuri sends his in, we shall have to answer him too, worse luck.)

Safarov’s article is unsuitable. I think he should be ad vised to rewrite it in a legal vein (this is not at all difficult) for Letopis or for Volna. Wouldn’t it be better to have this done verbally, if you will be seeing him soon?

How are things to be sent to Volna? Simply direct to their address? Registered book-post? Has a new pseudonym been arranged with them?

Send me the legal pamphlets of Plekhanov and Potresov.[2]

In regard to Neue Zeit I have written to the forwarding office.
