Kazan or Sviyazhsk
Congratulations on the capture of Simbirsk. I think the maximum effort must be made to clear Siberia as quickly as possible. Do not grudge money for bonuses. Telegraph whether Kazan’s valuable objects have been saved and how many of them. Tomorrow I shall be back at work again.
 Simbirsk was liberated on September 12, 1918, by units of the Iron Division led by G. D. Gai.
