Transcript members of the ' All-Union Bureau,' that I raised the question of the ' Industrial Party.' We were told that this party sought connections and contact with the organisations of the Menshevik Party in the Soviet Union. We were further informed that the ' Industrial Party ' had great sums of money at its disposal, enabling it to subsidise the ' All-Union Bureau.' When I arrived at the meeting a lively debate was already going on, in which I took part.

We waited for Gromann for half an hour, but he did not appear. The reason given was that he was suffering from angina pectoris, but it is possible that other reasons played a part. We two discussed matters alone. We both deemed it superfluous to raise any questions with respect to the programmatic standpoints of our parties. We did not touch upon these questions. Our discussion dealt with the tactics for the overthrow of the dictatorship of the proletariat. Ramzin was interested in the tactical measures and practical work of the Social Democratic organisations, especially the work in the offices of the authorities and of the planning and operative organs. It was only natural that this work should be of interest to 33
