Letter to Georgi Plekhanov, November 19, 1901
I’m afraid, dear G. V., that I’m giving you no peace with my letters. I seem to be bombarding you every day.
I sent you the article “The Present Industrial Crisis”. I believe it isn’t bad and could go into Zarya No. 4 with some slight changes. Please read it as soon as you have a free moment and give your opinion. If you approve of it, we shall have it set up in type very soon (in a week and a half or so) so that Dietz’s printery should not stand idle. Perhaps Koltsov would agree to help edit the article if necessary?
As regards printing the documents of the conference the majority has already declared for immediate publication (Vel. Dm., Blumenfeld, two Berlin members, and myself, i.e., five out of the nine—the six editors and three administrators). In other words, that question is decided. Let B. Abr. hurry as much as possible.
Do you happen to have an extra copy of the Russian edition of “What Next?” We haven’t a single one. Please send it.
- The article, by A. Y. Finn-Yenotayevsky, was never published.—Ed.
