Comrade Adoratsky,

I have passed on to Comrade Khodorovsky a request to help you as regards rations, wood fuel, etc.

He has promised to do this.

Write to me when someone is coming this way (bettor through the military) 

(1) has anything been done to help you? in rations? in fuel?

(2) do you need anything more?

(3) can you collect material for the history of the Civil War

and the history of the Soviet Republic?

Can you collect any of this material in Kazan? Can I be of assistance?

Files of Izvestia and Pravda? Is a lot missing?

Can I help in getting what is missing?

Please write to me, and give your address.

Best greetings.



[1] Adoratsky, V. V. (1878–1945)—professional revolutionary, Bolshevik.
