Your second letter received. The first did not reach us. Congratulations on the successful start of the raid on Bukva, which we would ask you to carry to the end. The paper has been launched, we expect to put it out in January. (Money is desperately needed. Please do everything you can at once to send at least 1,000–2,000 rubles, otherwise we shall be in the air and everything will be left to chance.) Let us know at once: 1) when will you see Bukva and when do you hope to clear up the matter, 2) exactly how much has Bukva promised to give per month? 3) did you speak to Bukva about Sysoika and what did you say? 4) what was the nature of the meeting between Bukva and Charushnikov to have been (concerning a talk with Sysoika? general acquaintance? or the handing over of the money?)? Did the meeting take place and when will you know the results?
