Dear Comrade,

I thank you very, very much for the information. I shall not go now either to read the lecture or to the meeting,[1] as I have to write daily for Pravda in Petrograd.

My best regards,

Please continue to keep me informed of news and speeches of the different trends.


[1] Karpinsky invited Lenin to Geneva to deliver a lecture to Russian emigrants and Swiss socialists on the Party’s tasks in the revolution.

The meeting of Russian and Swiss internationalists mentioned in the letter took place on March 9 (22), 1917. Lenin did not attend it.
