Dear L. B.,
I am sending you the set of Proletary (Nos. 1–20) which you asked for.
I have reread some of them. Do not forget to insert a whole chapter on the Popular Socialist liquidators (from Two Parties) in your legal pamphlet. (Peshekhonov, Nos. 7 and 8 of Russkoye Bogatstvo, 1906—cf. Proletary No. 4, “Socialist-Revolutionary Mensheviks”. )
People now have forgotten everything. The novices know nothing.
Begin at the beginning and tell all about liquidationism (and the “legal party”) among the Popular Socialists.
- This apparently refers to L. B. Kamenev’s pamphlet The Essence of Liquidationism which was to have been put out by the Priboi Publishers.
