I received today from Karpinsky my First Letter, which you apparently managed to send him. Thanks.
There is no Second Letter. You received it, didn’t you?? Then where is it?
Letters 3 and 4 for Pravda I shall send to you tomorrow, Wednesday. When you have read them and shown them to Usiyevich, please forward them to the Karpinskys. I have a lecture here today.
It’s interesting what you will have to say about Letter No. 3—during our talks.
All the very best,
P.S. I thought you would inform me by postcard that my letter had been forwarded to Karpinsky and yesterday I wrote to Usiyevich, believing that you had gone away.
 Lenin read a lecture “The Tasks of the R.S.D.L.P. in the Russian Revolution” at a meeting of Swiss workers in the Zurich People’s House on March 27, 1917 (see present edition, Vol. 23, pp. 355–61).—Ed.
