August 23, 1919
I have received from you samples of fruit from state farms with report No. 4936 (dated 22/8, 1919), and would kindly ask you not to do this in future, not to send fruit, etc., but to supply me with information as to how fruit, etc., from state farms is distributed: whether it is given to hospitals, sanatoria, children, where precisely it goes and how much of it. How many state farms have you, what is the composition of their managements, how many send in reports, how many have sent and for what period, etc.?
V. Ulyanov (Lenin)
