I am sorry that I am a day late with my article ; I was not well yesterday and in general the work is going terribly hard these last few days.
The article turned out longer than I thought and had to be divided into two parts; in the second part I shall make a detailed analysis of Novobrantsev and draw conclusions.
I consider that my article should have a signature and so I am taking a pseudonym, otherwise, pending the announcement, it will probably be inconvenient for you.
Will you please also insert my statement appended herewith in the issue of Iskra containing the announcement about the Congress. Of course, in the event of complete peace being established in the Party (which I am hoping for) and if you were to find it necessary, I could, among other peace terms, discuss also the non-publication of this statement.
