I must have before Krasin’s departure the shortest possible outline of all works being carried on at Gosplan as regards economic operations required to boost agriculture in the famine-stricken gubernias.
Please order this outline for me to have it ready within two or three days.
Please bear in mind that this should be confined to the briefest information, a few lines about each of the proposed works, with an estimate of their volume and cost.
Please let me know when I can have this report.
V. Ulyanov (Lenin)
Chairman, Council of People’s Commissars
