I am sending you the promised No. of Volksrecht containing the resolution of the meeting of protest against postponement of the congress. If there are any Swiss Lefts in Clarens and Lausanne, it would be a good thing to translate this resolution and get them to protest too.
Return Kamenev directly to me when you have read it, as I have not read it yet.
I am sending you the catalogues for 2 days: look through them and write out (the titles and numbers) what is of interest to you. I shall be able to send you one book at a time from this library. I also have the big main catalogue: I can send you this too if you are interested and if it is not available at the local public library.
All the best,
 The newspaper Volksrecht No. 5 for January 6, 1917, carried an article on the party meeting held in the Zurich People’s House on January 5. One point in the adopted resolution ex pressed a protest against “the agitation being carried on behind the scenes” for postponing the party congress.
 This probably refers to L. B. Kamenev’s pamphlet The Downfall of the International.
