Dear Comrade,

I have sent you (through Inessa) copies of two of my articles for Pravda—for information, to co-ordinate our views.

I need them back on Monday: if necessary, send them express and take them to the station.

Be careful about blocs with the Nachalo[1] people: we are against rapprochement with other parties, are for warning the workers against Chkheidze. Essential! Chkheidze is clearly wobbling: cf. how he is being praised in the Temps of March 22 and in many other papers. We are for the C.C. in Russia, for Pravda, for our Party, for a proletarian militia preparing the way for peace and socialism.


Yours, Lenin
