  [77] The article "Golos (Voice ) of the Liquidators Against the Party " was written by Lenin as an editorial for No. 12 of the newspaper Sotsial-Demokrat. The article was issued as a separate print in the second half of March and afterwards published in the newspaper Sotsial-Demokrat.    [p. 156]

  [78] Diskussionny Listok (Discussion Bulletin ) -- a supplement to Sotsial-Demokrat, the Central Organ of the R.S.D.L.P. It was published in Paris by a decision of the January (1910) plenum of the Central Committee of the R.S.D.L.P. from March 6 (19), 1910 to April 29 (May 12), 1911; three numbers were issued.    [p. 156]

  [81] The Letter of the Central Committee Bureau Abroad of the R.S.D.L.P. "To All Comrades Abroad" was published as a separate leaflet on March 3 (16), 1910.
    The Central Committee Bureau Abroad (C.C.B.A.) was set up by the plenum of the Central Committee of the R.S.D.L.P. in August 1908 as the general representative body of the Party abroad, subordinate and accountable to the Russian Bureau of the Central Committee. Shortly after the January plenum, a liquidationist majority developed among the members of the C.C.B.A., and the C.C.B.A. became a centre for mobilising anti-Party forces. The liquidationist tactics of the C.C.B.A. compelled the Leninist Bolsheviks to recall their representative from it in May 1911. A little later the representatives of the Polish and Lettish Social-Democrats were recalled. In January 1912 the C.C.B.A. dissolved itself.    [p. 161]

  [82] The reference is to the "Open Letter" advocating liquidationist views, signed by the Mensheviks: Avgustovsky -- S. O. Tsederbaum-Yezhov; Anton -- M. S. Makadzyub; Vadim -- V. K. Ikov;
