Transcript I REMINISCENCES OF LENIN provided "their Ilyitch" with gifts of white flour, bacon, eggs, fruit, etc. ; but it was also well known that nothing remained in Lenin's household. Everything found its way to the hospitals and children's homes ; Lenin's family held strictly to the principle of not living better than the others, that is, than the working masses. I had not seen Comrade Krupskaya, Lenin's wife, since the International Socialist Women's Conference at Berne in March, 1915. Her kind face with its warm, friendly eyes, bore ineradicable signs of the malignant disease which was eating her away. But apart from that, she, too, had remained the same, the embodiment of sincerity and modesty, of an almost Puritan simplicity. With her hair smoothly combed back and tied in an inartistic knot at the back, in her ill-fitting dress, one could have taken her for a flurried housewife whose only worry is to save time, to gain time. The "first lady of the Great Russian Empire"— according to bourgeois ideas and phraseology—is undoubtedly the first in willing forgetfulness of self, in sacrifices for the cause of the toilers and the oppressed. The closest community of ideas and work in life bound her to Lenin. Impossible to speak of him, without thinking of her. She was "Lenin's right hand," his first and best secretary, his most convinced comrade in thought, the most experienced exponent and agent of his views, as untiring in gaining friends and adherents for the master of genius with strength and wisdom, as in carrying on propaganda among the working-class. Apart from that she had her own personal sphere of activity to which she devoted herself with her whole soul : the system of popular education and instruction. It would be ridiculous, insulting to suppose that Comrade Krupskaya was in the Kremlin as "deputy for Lenin." II
