MY BREAK WITH STALIN

to be an intimate of one who breaks with him, and I knew my refusal to assist in my friend's murder would be regarded by Yezhov and Stalin with no kindly eyes. I proposed to return home, and asked for instructions.
At three o'clock in the morning of Tuesday, July 20, I was awakened by a telephone-call. It was Spiegelglass.
" Did you receive a letter?" he asked.
I answered sincerely that I did not know what he was talking about, for in my sleepy condition I did not instantly recall the letter that had come from Reiss.
Spiegclgl«ss asked me to meet him at once. I demurred. He insisted it was urgent, and I finally yielded. I dressed hastily and met him at a nearby cafe. Here Spiegelglass asked me specifically if I had received a letter from Reiss. Astonished at his omniscience, I pulled it out of my pocket. He demanded that I should let him read it, and asked me to have it photographed right away, which was quite impossible. He wanted a photostat of the letter and I decided to let him have the original.
My situation had grown more complicated. I had received a letter from the "traitor" Reiss, and had failed to notify Spiegelglass immediately. Moreover, I had denied, when first awakened by his telephonecall, that I possessed such a letter. This clearly marked me in the eyes of Spiegelglass as an accomplice of Reiss.
I wrote my wife to pack up and come to Paris with the child, in preparation for our return to Moscow. She arrived in Paris at the end of the month, and we established ourselves, under the name of Lessner, at a pension on the Rue des Maronniers, Passy, a wealthy residential district.
On August I o my recall to Moscow came through. As my Austrian passport under the name of Eduard
