Dear V. A.,

I trust you have already received our telegram[1] (have forwarded it for publication to Züricher Volksrecht) and have sent the “Farewell Letter” to be set up.

I trust also that you have sent Radek (address: Fürstenberg—inside: for Radek—Birgerjarlsgatan, 8. Stockholm) the missing document for the minutes, namely: the resolution of the meeting of Mensheviks, Nachalo people[3] and others against the journey.

Did I give you the address of my people? Maria Ilyinichna Ulyanova (for V. I. U.), Petrograd, 48/9 Shirokaya Ulitsa, Flat 24. Write me a postcard at this address saying whether the Abschiedsbrief[2] has come out (and in what languages), whether it has been sent to Stockholm and so on.

Don’t forget to contact Grisha and get from him the French and English opposition newspapers for Radek.

[3] Nachalo people—adherents of the group formed around the Menshevik-Trotskyite newspaper Nachalo (Beginning), published in Paris from September 1916 to March 1917.
