5. VI. 1919
Mezhlauk, Deputy People’s Commissar for Military Affairs,
Thanks for the detailed news and energetic effort, but the matter must be carried through to the end. Do not rely on anyone and remain personally until fully trained units have been brought to their destination or until they have joined the front-line units.
 At the top of the telegram Lenin wrote: “Sklyansky. Bubnov wires on 4/VI that he is leaving for Ekaterinoslav. If you know his address, readdress this.”—Ed.
