Yesterday the bourgeois papers again published misinformation about my promising to address. A meeting of delegates from the front on Sunday, April 30. I gave no such promise. Owing to illness I cannot speak. I would ask that only information published in Pravda and only statements signed by me should be believed, otherwise it will be impossible for me to contend with falsehood, inaccuracies and misrepresentation.

N. Lenin
