I must call your attention to the extreme disorder in
our office. The attached telephone message shows that it
was sent out on 24/IV (hour?)
and received at 11.25 on 25.IV.
(i.e., the telephone message took 11 hours to arrive!)
I received it
at 12.00 on 26/IV.
This is most outrageous!
I propose that you should conduct right away a full and thorough investigation to find out who is to blame, and give me the facts. The office routine should be reviewed and renewed.
V. Ulyanov (Lenin)
