I earnestly request you to speed up as much as possible the Science and Technology Department’s findings in regard to the Radio Laboratory. It is extremely urgent. Drop me a line when its findings are ready.
 This refers to the Nizhni-Novgorod Radio Laboratory, which was founded in 1918 by M. A. Bonch-Bruyevich and V. M. Leshchinsky, and was one of the first scientific research institutes established after the October Revolution. Lenin took a personal interest in the work of the Radio Laboratory and gave it repeated support.
