Comrade Zalutsky:

I am sending on this letter to you. Pass it on where it belongs, if it has nothing to do with you.

The charges against such an old Party member and revolutionary, known to every Latvian, and then to Trotsky and many others during the war, are clearly incredible. I have known Danishevsky throughout the Party’s history, years and years before the revolution, and I request that everything, should be checked carefully, rigorously and comprehensively.[1]



[1] On the strength of unverified accusations, K. Kh. Danishevsky was expelled from the R.C.P.(B.), at the end of 1921, by the Khamovniki District Commission (Moscow) for Purging the Party.

The Central Commission for Checking up on the Membership of the R.C.P.(B.) rejected the groundless accusations and reinstated Danishevsky in the Party.
