August 30, 1904
I cannot take part in the voting on co-optation proposed by you until I receive your written reply to my protest of August 18, 1904, and detailed information on the decisions allegedly adopted by the Central Committee. I cannot come to Geneva at the present time.
Lenin, C.C. member
 V. A. Noskov informed Lenin of the C.C.’s decision to co-optate three new members on to the C.C., namely, L. Y. Karpov, A. I. Lyubimov, and I. F. Dubrovinsky, and asked Lenin to give his vote for or against the nominated candidates within a week.
