Comrade Ramensky
Representative of Tver Gubernia

Tell the teachers of Tver Gubernia that the kulaks have their grain and that the task of Soviet power is to turn this grain over to the working people.

V. Ulyanov (Lenin)

22/II. 1919


[1] Written by Lenin on the title page of a copy of his pamphlet The Struggle for Grain (Moscow, 1918), which through the medium of A. P. Ramensky (a colleague of I. N. Ulyanov—Lenin’s father) he presented to a delegation of teachers from Tver Gubernia. The delegation had come to Moscow to ask for help in the form of food for Tver teachers.

Lenin’s pamphlet contained the text of his report on combating the famine delivered at a joint session of the All-Russia Central Executive Committee, the Moscow Soviet, and the trade unions on June 4, 1918, and his reply to the debate on the report (see present edition, Vol. 27, pp. 419–43).
