July 2, 1900

Mother dearest,

Unfortunately I have to tell you that our meeting has to be postponed for a time. I must pay a short visit to a comrade in Siberia,[1] so I shall not be passing through Podolsk before the 20th or 21st (most likely the 20th, I think). Then all I shall have to do is get my things together, get visas in my passport and continue on my way. If the things have not yet arrived, I would ask Mitya to take the most energetic measures, up to and including a personal trip. Our people are all well and send their regards.

I embrace you fondly, Mother dearest, and send regards to all.

V. U.


[1] Lenin intended going to Siberia to see G. M. Krzhizhanovsky but went to Ufa instead (cf. Note 226). On June 10, 1900 he returned to Podolsk from Ufa and on July 16 went abroad to organise the all-Russia illegal newspaper Iskra (The Spark).
