Comrade Smolyaninov:

I thank you for your information.[1] Will you be so kind as to find out the exact address of Comrade Zhidelev in the Crimea. I want to send him a letter (it would be more reliable to send it along with someone; please find out when there is an express train for the Crimea).

With communist greetings,


I forgot another assignment (1) send me I. Besprozvanny’s pamphlets: (a) Planning Bureau at a Small Industrial Enterprise Organised on the Taylor System, Nizhni-Novgorod, 1915.

and (b) also his: Modern Organisation of American Plants, Moscow, 1919.

Also find out at the SEC archives who gave permission or submitted for publication this latter pamphlet, the 1919 one. It is the SEC that has published it.[2]

  1. A reference to V. A. Smolyaninov’s reply on September 1, 1922, in connection with Lenin’s letter addressed to A. I. Rykov (see Collected Works, Fifth (Russian) Edition, Vol. 54, Document 440).
  2. V. A. Smolyaninov fulfilled Lenin’s assignments; he supplied N. A. Zhidelev’s address, and sent in the books and an extract from the minutes of Gostekhizdat publishers on the publication of I. M. Besprozvanny’s book.
