12. I. 1920
Revolutionary Military Council 5
1) R.M.C. 3 proposes converting the 3rd Army into a labour army for economic revival of the Urals, Chelyabinsk and Tobolsk gubernias. I am in full sympathy with this and shall put it before the Council of People’s Commissars tomorrow. Please give your opinion.
2) I am deeply concerned about the delay in delivering here 200 locomotives with food trains. The most urgent revolutionary measures must be taken to hasten this. See to prompt unconditional execution.
