MY BREAK WITH STALIN

to Lydia Grozovskaya, an Ogpu agent attached to our trade mission in Paris. Reiss had felt sure that his letters would not be opened in France. He did not know that he had been under suspicion, and that Spiegelglass had been sent with plenipotentiary powers to purge the foreign services. Yezhov had given him complete authority and orders to stop at nothing, not even kidnapping or assassinating suspected agents. "Yes," said Spiegelglass, pointing to the letters in his hand, "we even suspected you in the beginning. For we were told only that some high Soviet agent had appeared in Holland and established contact with the Trotskyites. We found out that Ludwig and not you was the traitor."
On June 11, the day Moscow announced the purge of Tukhachevsky and the eight ranking generals of the Red Army, my friend Reiss had gone to Amsterdam, according to information in the hands of the Ogpu. There he had had a secret conference with H. Sneevliet, Member of Parliament and leader of the Amsterdam Transport Workers' Union, a man of Trotskyite leanings. The Ogpu had eyes and ears everywhere.
At first Spiegelglass was not inclined to let me read the letters of resignation handed in by Reiss, but he finally yielded. My friend's principal message was addressed to the Central Committee of the Communist Party-that is, to Stalin, its General Secretary. This letter was dated July 17, and must have been penned but a few hours before my brief meeting with Reiss. He had evidently intended to discuss his decision with me at our rendezvous the following day. Reiss wrote :
The letter which I am addressing to you to-day I should have written a long time ago, on the day when the Sixteen (referring to the Kamenev-Zinoviev group, executed in August 1936) were murdered in the cellars of the Lubianka
