In a conversation with Comrade Lansbury I promised to write about our attitude to religion.[1] Comrade Krasikov has done this much better than I could have done, the more so since Comrade Krasikov is specially in charge of these affairs.




[1] George Lansbury, editor of the British newspaper The Daily Herald, visited Soviet Russia in February 1920. On February  21 he was received by Lenin who had a detailed conversation with him, in particular on the attitude of the Bolsheviks to religion. On returning to England, Lansbury sent Lenin a letter in which he wrote: “Many thanks to you and all your colleagues for the help you have given me in my try to understand your revolution.” = (Collected Works, Fifth Ed., Vol. 51, p. 412.)
