We have written to Bukharin.
I am sending you an article; it should go to Berne too, as Paris is silent.
We must calculate more exactly (you have both the MSS. and proofs) how much there is for Berne.
Naturally, I can’t be “pleased” with your keeping my articles so long in pickle. Send them immediately to the printing shop: you hurried me with them, saying the compositor was hurrying you!!
And where are our theses? Where are the proofs of them?
The question of Sotsial-Demokrat is a difficult one, as I am afraid this will hold up Sbornik Sotsial-Demokrata!!
When you have returned “Disarmament” I shall think it over finally. We shall weigh more carefully what can go in there, how long it will hold up Sbornik.
I am not writing anything so far for Voprosy. But for the collection (Pod Starym Znamenem) I want to write about Kautskyism (incidentally, return the pamphlet on imperialism as soon as possible: I need it for quoting).
P.S. On business matters you answer much less.
