Transcript Supply him with a translation of at least one of the decrees relating to factories? ■ "How far this process has gone, cannot yet be determined. Tihs aspect of the activity of the Soviet Republic has at any rate a maximum interest for us, but it still remains entirely shrouded in darkness. There is no lack of decrees" [is that the reason why Kautsky ignores or hides the contents of those decrees from his readers?] "but reliable information as to their effects is practically non-existent.
