I am sending you this letter as a supplement to our last talk. I believe it to be absolutely necessary to have as many C.C. members as possible make a personal acquaintance with Yakovenko at the forthcoming congress. Please send this letter to all the members of the Orgbureau first, and then pass it on to the other C.C. members. Ask Molotov to phone me after he reads the letter.
 A reference to a letter from I. A. Teodorovich, Deputy People’s Commissar for Agriculture, giving a detailed characteristic of V. G. Yakovenko, Chairman of the Kansk Uyezd Executive Committee of Yeniseisk Gubernia, and recommending him for the post of People’s Commissar for Agriculture.
