Comrades Chicherin or Karakhan

Will you please send to Berlin tomorrow, Friday, 12 copies of my article against Kautsky from Pravda[1] for Joffe, Berzin and Vorovsky, and the following brief letter from me to them:

Dear Comrades,

I am very well aware of the shortcomings of my too brief article against Kautsky. Nevertheless, it is necessary for us, as quickly as possible, to take a stand, to express our opinion. Will you please have it translated and published as a leaflet.


10/X. 1918

  1. This refers to the article “The Proletarian Revolution and the Renegade Kautsky” (see present edition, Vol. 28, pp. 105–13). The article was published in Pravda on October 11, 1918.
