Comrade Krasin:

Give this your particular attention. I wonder whether Klyshko is talkative? A diplomatist should know how to hold his tongue, and speak in such a way as to say nothing. Does Klyshko know how? Does he understand this?[1]

9/V. Lenin


[1] Together with this note, Lenin sent L. B. Krasin G. V. Chicherin’s letter of May 8, 1921, informing Lenin that he had suggested that N. K. Klyshko should not respond to any statements by the British Government and the press until Krasin’s return to London.
