Please give your assistance to the bearer, Comrade Malyshev, who is organising supplies of explosives for the group going to Kotlas. The matter is supremely urgent.
It is necessary that explosives should be got without loss of time from Vyazma (Malyshev will leave for Vyazma this very day, with a warrant from you).
You must also send a telegram to Kursk summoning Comrade Sobolev, a demolition instructor.
The demolition group require one carriage (fast) to Kotlas.
Chairman, Council of People’s Commissars
