Dear M. N.,

I had just sent you a postcard about the pamphlet (in reply to yours) when I started receiving the money and have now received 500 frs. in 2 instalments, for which I thank you very much.

I have also received a formal answer (from the P.O.) that my manuscript on economics,[1] which I sent you on 2.VII.1916, saisi l’autorité militaire!!![2]

Simply incredible!! Can anything be done about it, or is it hopeless?

Best regards and best wishes,
V. Ulyanov
