Transcript pencil. It is possible that this was not the original, but .only the decoded copy. " In the session in question this document was not put forward for discussion, but I glanced through it. Briefly, its contents were as follows : The hope of a liquidation of the Bolshevist dictatorship in the course of natural development, and as the result of the internal breaking up of the C.P.S.U., has not been fulfilled .and is becoming more and more slender. In the meantime, Bolshevism has returned to the path of war Communism, and as a result new misery has been caused in the country, economic chaos and an increase of the terror.

" On the other hand, the weakening of the connection between the Bolshevist State and economic apparatus plays not a negative but a positive role in view of the coming armed conflict with Western Europe. From this develops the task of Social Democracy of organising the intellectual 28 II
