Mr. Vl. Oulianoff. 6.
Oakley Square. London. N.W.
I am sitting in the British Museum and reading with interest Schweitzer’s pamphlets of the 60s; it is wonderful how they bear out the opinion of him as an opportunist in the question of ways to unity!
I obviously will not have the time to do everything need ed to write about this. I would therefore ask you to go (or send a reliable person) to the Bibliothéque Nationale without a day’s delay to find out what socialist literature of the 60s they have there. The way to go about it is this: write down all the most important titles (exact dates and places of publication are important) and let them tell you what they haven’t got.
Add to the enclosed list (from Bebel and Mehring and Gust. Mayer) and reply as soon as possible.
