Y. D.,

A code message must be sent that nobody anywhere should ever use the nickname Kamo, which should immediately be replaced by another, a new one. The town where Kamo is must be mentioned only in code.



[1] This note was written on a letter from S. M. Kirov and I. P. Babkin dated December 9, 1919, concerning the situation in the Caucasus. The letter stated that there was no exact information whether Kamo had arrived in Baku.

In the autumn of 1919, Kamo, at the head of a combat group, was sent secretly from Moscow with arms, munitions and literature to carry out underground work in the Caucasus. Overcoming   all difficulties, the group arrived safely in Baku and joined in the struggle against the Denikinites.
