Will you please assist the bearers, Comrades Sadkov and Renqvist, representatives of the Finnish Communist Club and the Finnish railwaymen. Cannot they be given the 9,000 poods they need from the Moscow warehouses or, if that is absolutely impossible, from the Tambov grain collection depots? It is essential to help them.
 On November 22, 1918, the Procurement and Supplies Department of the People’s Commissariat for Food informed the Finnish Communist Club: “...in view of the fact that the organisations are only partially supplied at the present time, 6,000 poods of grain have been allocated to you from the stocks of the Food Commissariat. Enclosed herewith is a copy of Comrade Lenin’s letter”. (Collected Works, Fifth Ed., Vol. 50, p. 453.)
