Comrade Korostelev:

Of course, the whole point is to help the enterprises. You are right. We shall start switching individual enterprises to collective supply immediately. Both L. B. Kamenev and myself are in favour of this. We shall get through the C.L.D. the list which you will hand in, by agreement with the Moscow presidium (or against the Moscow workers, if they prove to be obstinate). Please reply by messenger.

With communist greetings,


[1] Written in reply to a letter from A. A Korostelev, in which he explains why the Commission for Assisting the Economic Bodies has failed to start work, in particular referring to the fact that collective supply for workers has not yet been introduced at enterprises in Moscow and Petrograd.
