I request the members of the Board of the Commissariat for Justice (preferably all of them) to visit me (we can agree on the day and time) for a talk about the following:

1) what precisely has been done for publishing a Collection of Laws and Decrees.

2)—for codification, 

3)—for ensuring speedier and more ruthless court action against the bourgeoisie, embezzlers of state properly, etc., 

4)—for juridical propaganda among the population, among the workers and poor peasants
(a) in printed form;
(b) by lectures (or classes, and so on), 

5)—for drawing the poor into the work of court proceedings (jurors) and investigation, 

6)—for using Shreider’s personnel and others.

V. Ulyanov (Lenin)
Chairman, C.P.C.
