Thanks for the compliment Louis. I have never expressed my views on the
Moscow trials to this list. I should know more about the fine detail, but
I do know the lessons to be learned from them about the lengths that the
opponents of the Communist cause will go, including working their way
into the very heart of the workers movement. It is important not to
forget that because it has happened many times before, and will happen
again. Both Yeltsin and Gorbachov have admitted that they were never
really communists.

We haven't published your article yet. The decision is not in my hands,
but I will keep nagging.

Best wishes,
