Please let me have a set of the newspaper Rudè Pravo (Red Right)[1] of the Czech Communist Party, relating to the Congress of the Czechoslovak Communist Party in May 1921[2] (ask Axelrod or the Czechoslovak delegate Smeral).

The same thing, with the German newspaper Vorwärts, which is published in Reichenberg in Czechoslovakia. (Ask Axelrod or Krejbich, the delegate of the German Communist Party of Czechoslovakia.)

  1. Rudè Pravo—a daily, initially the organ of the Czechoslovak Social-Democratic Party (Left) and then the Central Organ of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia, published since September 21, 1920.
  2. A reference to the Congress of the Czechoslovak Social-Democratic Party (Left), held in Prague from May 14 to 16, 1921, which inaugurated the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia.
    Lenin made a thorough study of the proceedings of the Inaugural Congress of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia (see this volume, Document 324; Collected Works, Fifth (Russian) Edition, Vol. 53, Document 65).
