The estate is said to comprise about 30 dessiatines of ploughland, and 130 of forest. The Saratov Gubernia Executive Committee is said to be agreeable. I think this should be placed before the Narrow Council right away, and an inquiry and on-the-spot study appointed through the Narrow Council.
 Written on a letter from the Academy of Sciences of Russia to the C.P.C. of January 21, 1921, petitioning the nationalisation and transfer to the Academy of a former estate of Academician A. A. Shakhmatov, called Gubanovka-Shakhmatovka (Saratov Gubernia), for use as a rest home for scientists. On January 31, 1921, the Narrow C.P.C. passed a decision to send an inquiry on the matter to the Saratov Gubernia Executive Committee.
