Comrade N. P. Gorbunov:
Please give a closer reading to Comrade Eiduk’s material and have a talk with him,
to try to formulate the practical proposals
together with him.
Tell Comrade Eiduk that I am extremely interested in this most important matter, and very much regret that I am unable just now to take it up personally.
But once the practical proposals are there, I shall tackle it.
2) The Narrow Council business as designated.
 A reference to the memorandum and report on the state of and prospects for fuel supply in the Soviet Republic submitted by A. V. Eiduk, a special representative of the Council of Labour and Defence for central fuel administrations. On January 20, 1921, N. P. Gorbunov and Eiduk formulated practical proposals on this question. On January 28, the C.L.D. set up a plenipotentiary commission on fuel, headed by V. A. Avanesov, and on January 31, following an examination of Eiduk’s report about the disastrous state of the railways, the C.L.D. included him in the commission as well, adopting a decision on fuel on February 2.
