Will you please examine as quickly as possible the proposals of Comrade I. I. Ulyanov so that the question can be settled without delay.
Ivan Ivanovich Ulyanov, former Chairman of the Urals Revolutionary Committee, a member of the All-Russia Central Executive Committee (since X. 1917), urges the necessity of raising a division from among the Cossack proletarian masses in the area of Saratov and Pokrovsk for operation behind the enemy lines, in the steppes beyond the Urals.
Ulyanov himself, Khaustov (Chairman of the Bureau of the Yaitsk Revolutionary Committee, in Pokrovsk), two brothers of I. I. Ulyanov and a few others, whom he undertakes to select, would like to take up the formation of a special detachment.
Required for this are:
1) special powers;
2) arms and supplies;
V. Ulyanov (Lenin)
