Dear V. K.,

As we agreed, I intend to visit Geneva and Lausanne for a lecture, “Two Streams in the International Labour Movement” (you said that this title was better than “Two Internationals”, which I used here).

If conditions have not changed, and my trip will pay for itself, please fix the date for a fortnight ahead (at Lausanne the day after).[1]

I shall be awaiting your reply.

I need to work a day or so at the Geneva Public Library. Could you find out whether by any chance it will be closed on any day, apart from the holidays?



[1] Lenin’s lecture at Geneva, “Two Streams in the International Labour Movement”, was given on Friday, June 2, 1916, according to the posters issued by the Geneva Bolshevik group, now in the Archives of the Institute of Marxism-Leninism of the C.P.S.U. Central Committee. The lecture at Lausanne was given on June 3.
