We are being asked in what sense we saw Grimm’s behaviour as being “ambiguous”. We reply—for readers who have not had the opportunity of securing the issue of the newspaper Volya Naroda,{1} which was precisely indicated—that the protocol we signed (we would have willingly reprinted it, but for the lack of space in Pravda) speaks only of Grimm’s attitude to Hoffmann, the bourgeois minister of the same neutral country (Switzerland).


{1} Volga Naroda (People’s Will)—a daily, the organ of the Right wing of the S.R. Party. It was published in Petrograd from April 29, 1917, and closed down in November 1917. Later it appeared under other names and was closed down for good in February 1918. p. 438
