I request that Gosplan Chairman Comrade Krzhizhanovsky should be put under an obligation

to leave for Riga with Krasin, so as to spend one month

there in a sanatorium or a private home, receiving treatment and taking a rest.

I strongly request that this should be done today, because I am convinced, in my capacity as Chairman of the Council of Labour and Defence, that the Gosplan Chairman is very nearly worn out. It is necessary, urgently necessary, to have him repaired.

Nothing can be done unless there is an Orgbureau decision.[1]

V. Ulyanov (Lenin)
Chairman, C.L.D.


[1] On August 30, 1921, Lenin was sent an extract from the minutes of a sitting of the Orgbureau of the R.C.P.(B.) C.C. of August 29, 1921, on the granting of leave to G. M. Krzhizhanovsky.
