Transcript Introduction . The documents contained in this pamphlet so exhaustively cover the subject with which it deals that any remarks made about it here risks being repetitive. If we take up some space here it is only in order to fortify two points made by the author, one dealing with the authenticity ef the Testament of Lenin and the other dealing with its deliberate falsification by the Stalinists. Once having suppressed the /Testament, it was only a matter of time before the Stalinists began to deny its very existence. To this day, assertions of its authenticity are challenged by friends of the present C. P. regime. If the existence of the document needs additional verification, it may be found in a speech by Joseph Staling reproduced in the International Pres* Correspondence of November 17, 1927. In it he says: "It is said that in the 'Testament' in question Lenin suggested to the party congress that it should deliberate on the question of replacing Stalin and appointing another comrade in his place as General Secretary of the party. This is perfectly true. . . . Yes, comrades, I am rude towards those who ape rudely and disloyally destroying and disintegrating the party. I have never made a secret of it and shall not do so now." Further verification is given by a pamphlet published by the Communist party of Great Britain, The Truth About Trotsky, by R. F. Andrews (London, 1934). On page 68, the author writes: "Lenin during his last illness wrote a confidential letter, which was read at the party congress, giving his opinions of the leading members of the Central Committee. He gave a personal criticism of Stalin as 'too rude' to be a good secretary^ and recommended his replacement. . . . But when he came to Trotsky, Lenin said that his 'non-Bolshevism' was 'not accidental', i.e., he gave a decisive political criticism." (Italics by Andrews.) 3
