November 22, 1915

Dear Alexandra Mikhailovna,

I failed to finish the letter I sent you today out of sheer absent-mindedness. This is the address: Mr. C. W. Fitzgerald, Secretary of the Socialist Propaganda League[1] 20. Baker Street. Beverly. Mass.

I was mistaken, therefore, when I said that he lives in Boston. But his sheet contains the addresses of all 18 members of the League, and among them some living in Boston. I hope you will make every effort to find out everything you can about them, and will try to build up out of them (either including them, or out of some of them) one of the rallying-points for the Zimmerwald Left in America.

Every good wish,
