I thank you most heartily for your greetings and your gift. I will tell you as a secret that you ought not to send me any gifts. I earnestly request you to spread this secret among the workers as widely as possible.
Please accept my best thanks, greetings and wishes.
V. Ulyanov (Lenin)
 This letter was written in reply to greetings from the Stodol Mill workers of November 3, 1922, when the mill was named after Lenin. Together with greetings, the workers sent Lenin a gift-a suit-length made at the mill.
