We are sending you a communication about the Third Congress of the R.S.D.L.P. Please let us know your attitude to the Third Congress and to the Party Centre it set up.
With S.D. greetings,
P.S. We would kindly ask you to reply within two weeks. In the event that we do not hear from you we shall be compelled to assume that the League does not recognise the Third Congress. Of course, the above time limit can be extended if need be.
 This is followed by an insertion in an unidentified handwriting: “—the signature of your representative on the letter to the delegates of the Third Congress leads to this assumption”.—Ed.
