We are in receipt of a letter from one of the leaders of the Lanka Sama Samaja Party, the Ceylonese section of the Fourth International, which contains the following verification of that party’s position on the role of China in the war upon which we had previously only been informed through second hand sources:
“It was Comrade X who left behind in Calcutta The New International for 1942. I had access to these issues. The articles by Comrade Max Shachtman on China in the World War led me to revise my position on China. I reviewed them in the Permanent Revolution which I happened to edit at that time. At the first All-India conference of the party a resolution moved by me was adopted. It was along the lines of the Shachtman article. I will be shortly sending these documents and shall be glad to hear your opinion.”
