Comrade Nikolayev,

I have received your letter of 7/VII.

I am very glad you have now started properly.

I advise you (1) to demand more officially and more insistently that all secrets should at once be revealed to you.

(2) Set up the installation, if possible, on special wooden supports, so that it can be removed instantaneously from the truck (perhaps better to use a flat-car instead of a truck) and placed on a lorry, on to the ground, and so on (for the inventor made a successful experiment, so he says, not in a truck).

(3) If you find that “the game is worth the candle”, then don’t be sparing with money and people for hastening the work.
