Concerning Comrade Tomsky’s reference to the workers press commission and its complete failure, I state that this reference is factually incorrect and that the mission of the newspaper Vperyod{1} (headed by A. A. Bogdanov and others) was undoubtedly useful.


{1} Vperyod (Forward)—a mass workers’ newspaper of the Bolshevik trend, directed by Lenin; it was published illegally in Vyborg by the Editorial Board of Proletary from September 10 (23), 1906, to January 19 (February 1), 1908. There were 20 issues.

It carried a number of articles by Lenin. p. 435
