Revolutionary Military Council 10
Copy to Raskolnikov
It is essential to retain Tsaritsyn, it has withstood a siege more than once. Strain every effort, inform us in more detail, more often, we are taking steps. Hasten the evacuation of anything not absolutely essential, and valuables. Mobilise en masse. Don’t weaken the political work. Mind you keep in touch with us.
