Comrade Ilyin asks that he and his family should be left in his old rooms in the former Metropole Hotel until the spring,
because the doctors certify that his wife and children are very ill and require the best possible position and conditions during an operation to be undergone in the winter.
Knowing Comrade Ilyin since before the revolution, from abroad, I earnestly request you to help him arrange this.
