Can it be arranged for detachments to go out for grain (to procure and transport by express goods train) according to alternative instructions, namely:
either for one time (to one volost, etc., for threshing in a uyezd, etc.)—then the bonus will be less,
or undertaking to work for a lengthy period (not one time, but for 3 or 4 months, etc., or once more when called upon by the Commissariat for Food, etc.)—and then the bonus will be higher.
(In both cases make it a condition that they are obliged not only to procure but also to thresh, and to carry the grain into barns, and to erect barns or half-sheds, etc.)
