Moscow, September 15, 1924

Dear Comrades,

The time is approaching for the Parliament of England to consider the treaty concluded between the governments of Great Britain and the SSSR for the purpose of ratification.

The fierce campaign raised by the British bourgeoisie around the question shows that the majority of the same, together with reactionary circles, are against the treaty

for the purposes of breaking off an agreement consolidating the ties between the proletariats of the two countries leading to the restoration of normal relations between England and the SSSR.

… In the meanwhile, however, strain every nerve in the struggle for ratification of the treaty, in favour of a continuation of negotiations regarding the regulation of relations between the SSSR and England.

A settlement of relations between the two countries will assist in the revolutionising of the international and British proletariat not less than a successful rising in any of the working districts in England,

as the establishment of a close contact between the British and Russian proletariat, the exchange of delegations and workers etc, will make it possible for us to extend and develop the propaganda of ideas of Leninism in England and the colonies.
