The current state of my health does not allow me to continue further work for the Fund.
Over the course of many years, Comrade Fleshin and myself did everything we could to help our prisoners in Soviet Russia. But now the moment has arrived when work for the Fund has become completely impossible for us.
With comradely greetings,
Paris, December 9 1935.
