Dear Bruno Rizzi,
I have obtained your narae from the list of overseas contacts of the Socialist Party of Great Britain (the previous Overseas Secretary has resigned and I am one of those doing the job for the time being). I hope you do not mind me asking, but are you the same Bruno Rizzi who wrote a book called « La bureaucratisation du monde » ? If so, was this book ever published and where could I get a copy of it because I have heard it alleged that it was plagiarised by James Burnham for his book « The Managerial revolution ».
I should also be interested in your currentpolitical views.
Also, do you still wish to receive copies of the SOCIALIST STANDARD ?
Yours for world Socialism,
for the Overseas Contacts Secretary.

Of course I will like to receive as usually Socialist Standard and I thank you very much. For my current political views, I will send you the first volume of « Socialismo Infantile » who is of course in Italien. But Comrade Walter Kendall mai help you. He is in syndacal Labour Party and tacht in a college of Oxford but leave in London. A photografed copie of the Burocratisation du Monde is available in British Museum and mai be some of my books too. The gentleman Burnham do of course a good bessenis whit my tought, but the wonder is that my books remain without recension, what I think, is very petty for Socialist idea developpement.
Yours for world Socialism
