We have nothing against the appointment of Kozhevnikov. Make contact with Obolensky and the All-Ukraine C.E.C. Do not act without agreement with Obolensky and the C.E.C.; if there are no objections on their part, we agree to the appointment of Kozhevnikov as Commissar Extraordinary of the Donets Basin.
 The address and sentences: “We have nothing against” and “Do not act without agreement with Obolensky and the C.E.C.” were written in Lenin’s hand.—Ed.
