Dear A. A.,

Here is Steklov’s letter. Reply to him yourself. I replied that I was agreeable, provided the subjects were changed round—philosophy for me, the peasant question for Bazarov.[1]

All the best,


P.S. Return the letter.

  1. In October 1908, Y. M. Steklov asked Lenin to write an article “Chernyshevsky and the Peasant Question” for a collection on Chernyshevsky’s life and work. He asked Lenin to inform Bogdanov of his letter. Lenin sent Bogdanov Steklov’s letter with his own note.
    The collection was not published.
