Gubernia Party Committee
Vladimir (gubernia centre)
I certify that Comrades Ratnikov, Rybakov, Romanov and Glazunov visited me on 27. X. 1920 on behalf of the uyezd Party conference (Alexandrov Uyezd, Vladimir Gubernia) in regard to a case of flagrant Party and Soviet abuses.
I consider their approach to me quite in order and called for by the circumstances of the case and ask to be informed what general procedure you have established for members of uyezd Party organisations to approach Moscow in general and the C.C., R.C.P. in particular.
With communist greetings,
V. Ulyanov (Lenin)
 On October 27, 1920, Lenin received a delegation from a Party Conference of Alexandrov Uyezd (Vladimir Gubernia), consisting of Comrades Ratnikov, Rybakov, Romanov and Glazunov, who informed him of abuses at the Troitsk Equipment Works and of the difficulty Party members had bringing the matter to the attention of the centre and obtaining its speedy investigation. The letter to the Vladimir Gubernia Party Committee was the result of Lenin’s conversation with this delegation.
