Interview With Lenin


W. P. Earsman


This document purports to be an account of a meeting between Lenin and two representatives of the Communist Party of Australia in Moscow on December 1, 1922 during the Fourth Congress of the Communist International. As far as is known it is the only report of the discussion and it therefore has considerable significance. A member of the Tribune collective sorting through the papers of the late Alec Robertson, (Tribune editor 1964-74), discovered it more or less by chance.
