(Deputy Commissar for Finance)
(or Comrade Bryukhanov)
The bearers of this note, representatives of the Pskov Gubernia Soviet, have so far been unable to obtain the food and financial assistance they are so badly in need of. The situation in Pskov Gubernia (especially owing to the German invasion; about one-ninth of the gubernia has been occupied) is desperate. I ask you most earnestly to consider what extraordinary measures you can adopt to help them, and to telephone me to talk it over.
