Comrade Volkov:

I have read your letter.[1] You are wrong. Our policy will not wreck our (trade) relations with France, but will accelerate them.

We have already made a gain by getting France away from the intervention plans, and shall gain even more.

We have a way to trade negotiations with France.

With communist greetings,


[1] This was added by Lenin at the bottom of a letter from N. P. Gorbunov, C.P.C. Business Manager, to the Kirsanov Uyezd Economic Conference, expressing, at Lenin’s request, gratitude for the timely submission of its report.
