Comrade Tsyurupa or his deputy
I am sending to you representatives of the Vyshny Volochok Soviet.
The famine there is appalling. It is urgently necessary to help by every means and to give at least something immediately.
I have already talked with these comrades about forming detachments and on the tasks of the food work, but you, too, should have a talk with them.
