The newspapers have again published a false report, alleging that for some unexplained reason I did not attend the Peasant Congress, evaded it, etc. As a matter of fact I was to have addressed the Congress on Wednesday and was prepared to do so when I was notified that on Wednesday the organisation question was to be discussed instead of the agrarian question, which was temporarily put off. The same thing occurred today, i.e., on Thursday. Once more I ask readers not to believe the papers, except Pravda.
