It is unforgivable your keeping us so poorly informed. To have money and not to engage a secretary to collect all socialist literature, pamphlets, and cuttings. To have money and not to arrange for photographing copies in reduced size. All this is inexcusable. All this can and should be arranged. Otherwise communication and information are thoroughly bad. Correct this, and write, if only rarely.
 On the back of the document Lenin wrote: “Please send in code to Rothstein.”—Ed.
