27. IX. 1920

Comrade Bryukhanov,

I am sending you two documents. Will you please read them and return both to me:

1) About Ivanovo-Voznesensk Gubernia.

We shall raise it in the Council of Defence on 29. IX.[1]

It is necessary to pay the most serious attention and to try to meet their requests in the greatest possible degree.

2) About Tambov Gubernia.

Pay attention. Is the requisition quota of 11 million poods correct? Should it not be cut down?

With communist greetings,


  1. On October 1, 1920, the Council of Labour and Defence discussed Lenin’s report concerning the supply of coal and food to factories of Ivanovo-Voznesensk Gubernia, belonging to the key group of textile enterprises, and decided: = “a) to endorse the agreement of September 28 of this year between the Ivanovo-Voznesensk Gubernia Food Committee and the People’s Commissariat for Food; = b) to take note of the statement of the People’s Commissariat for Food that 40 railway wagons of food have been sent from Nizhni-Novgorod” = (Lenin Miscellany XXXV, p. 155).
