I am not soliciting any high posts for Comrade Shklovsky. You know him by his work at the People’s Commissariat for Foreign Affairs.
But I ask you to speed up his departure abroad, because his wife fears that the children will not survive here. I have known the whole family since our stay abroad, and believe these fears to be weighty. This family cannot stand our conditions. They must be sent abroad.
With communist greetings,
