Will you kindly pass the enclosed letter to Smilga (only personally, not by post).
The comrade handing you this letter will be returning very soon: send the remaining newspapers with him and anything else that has been received for me.
Did you forward on to the north what I gave you to be handed over to our Swedish friends? Please answer through the bearer.
My best regards,
