Dear P. B.,
I take this opportunity to write a couple of words to you: the letters for B. N —ch just received should be passed on to him as soon as possible. If he is not there, please forward them to him.
If Berg is there, ask him to write me a few words about his plans: when and where he is going, and for how many days. And the main thing: did he receive the two letters I posted to him on Saturday morning (the 12th)?
We are busy getting settled—there is plenty to do. In the meantime write to Alexeyev’s address—I shall get it at once (Mr. Alexejeff. 14. Frederick Str. 14. Gray’s Inn Road. London W. C.). You got my letter from Cologne, didn’t you?
And what about your article?
(First impression of London: vile. And everything is quite expensive!)
 The reference is to “Remarks on the Committee’s Draft Programme” (present edition, Vol. 6, pp. 61–73). The “Remarks” were written in part in Cologne, where Lenin stopped ever on his way from Munich to London.—Ed.
