Download PDF for this date

Leon Trotsky plans to leave Constantinople on March 17, it was learned here today. He will proceed to Switzerland where he will await permission to enter France. If permission is granted him, he will go to Nice to undergo a cure, and then will settle near Montepellier.

The newspaper, “Petit Parsien,” published a report from Marseilles that Trotsky, through Lenin’s sister and other friends, has purchased a country estate at Tarassac near Montpellier where he will settle.
