I very much fear that we underestimate the “Penza” danger both as regards food and in a general political respect, and that in fact we shall not be able to send “agitators”.

Should we not adopt urgent measures to take a good food detachment (of Petrograd workers or the like) and get it moving at once, impressing upon them the task: for the first few weeks you will act as agitators.

I think it necessary that you most urgently get in touch

1) with Petrograd

2) with Sverdlov

concerning the dispatch to Penza and Penza Gubernia of some 50 people (agitators) from among Petrograd and Moscow workers.
