IV
WHEN STALIN COUNTERFEITED
DOLLARS

He was full of their success and it took some time to make him realize the gravity of the situation. The collapse of the Sass & Martini venture, I explained, had put a different complexion on the problem. Point by point I analysed for him the dangerous position into which he had manoeuvred us. He sat there like a man hearing a death sentence, and finally asked imploringly:
" What can I do?"
I told him that all the bills must be called in, and his agents instructed to lay off, and that he himself would have to go back to Moscow. I was not sure that Alfred would obey my orders, and I therefore arranged for Tairov to meet us together and confirm my full authority in the matter.
I t was from Alfred that I learned some of the details of the counterfeiting scheme. Although it was carried out in Moscow under Stalin's supervision, he claimed to have originated the idea. It was he, at any rate, who secured in the United States a shipment of the special paper used in printing money.
Alfred, whose surname was Tilden. belonged to the Latvian circle in our department, of which General Ian Berzin was the head. Alfred was tall, blue-eyed, lanky, of strong but homely features. I had known him and his wife Maria for several years. Maria was statuesque, was known as a crack shot, and was considered by everybody in Moscow the brains of the family.
In the spring of 1928 AAlfred had come to Paris to detach one of our best agents, Lydia Stahl, and transfer her to America. I had tried hard to keep Alfred from taking Lydia with him. A striking and clever woman, then in her thirties, once the wife of a Czarist officer and later married to Baron Stahl, a Baltic nobleman, Lydia had joined our secret service
