I confirm the above. I have known Comrade Adoratsky (and I know him we’ll) since the post–1905 period of reaction. In face of the trend to the right, he was a Bolshevik already at the lime, and has remained one. He arrived from Germany in 1919 in very poor health. He is a theorist and propagandist. I should think it absolutely right to date his membership in the R.C.P. from 1904.

10.IV.1922. V. Ulyanov (Lenin)


[1] Written at the bottom of the autobiography of V. V. Adoratsky, who was asking the Central Control Commission to date his Party membership from 1904. His request was met.
