Please raise the question in the Orgbureau. I think more should be issued for the sick by way of special diet and a decision adopted to improve it,
by setting up a medical commission.
For scorbutics and other patients, I think, we should
at once allow purchases to be made on the free market,
subject to certain rules (perhaps also a commission and
with the co-operation of the state farms).
Regarding the protest of the Petrograd Central Committee, I propose that votes be collected. I vote for:
1) mobilising Zinoviev;
2) cancelling general mobilisation of men.
