This note is a reply to A. D. Tsyurupa, who had informed Lenin that the food organisation of the Nikolayevskaya Railway had refused to allow A. I. Svidersky, member of the Board of the People’s Commissariat for Food, to carry out an inspection agreed upon between the Food Commissariat, the Commissariat for Railways, and the Supreme Economic Council. Tsyurupa asked Lenin’s advice as to what steps should be taken in this case.
You should hare drawn up a statement of the case concerning the refusal to admit the inspectors and asked me to take legal action against the guilty parties.
