Comrade Bryukhanov,

1) The description relates to the period of the landing. After it was liquidated the feeling and the state of affairs changed completely as, incidentally, Lander told me yesterday.

2) Lander also tells me that precisely now, after the successful suppression of a number of revolts (connected with the landing), grain collection (chiefly in the Kuban area, where there is plenty of grain) has gone forward and will go forward.

3) In Lander’s opinion, we can take there more than the estimated requisition quota.

Draw Frumkin’s attention to this in a confidential letter (not a telegram) to him. We must make the most of this opportunity, not lose time (it will be worse later), and apply our efforts to the Kuban.

With communist greetings,


[1] Written by Lenin in connection with a report from the Terek Regional Food Committee forwarded to him by Bryukhanov, Deputy People’s Commissar for Food. The report dealt with the difficult conditions of work in the region as a result of Wrangel’s landing in the Kuban area, with the unsatisfactory progress of food procurements, and with the feeling among the population.
