First: please inform me of the state of Stalin’s health, and the doctors’ opinion on this. Secondly, it would be extremely important for vis to get a concession from the Turks for the copper mines, south of Batum, which were ceded to them. Inform me whether any steps have been taken, and which. Thirdly, Krasin is in Moscow, and this should be taken advantage of in order to clear up the position of the Transcaucasian Commissariat of Foreign Trade. Fourthly, inform me of the state of Reske’s health, and when his treatment will be completed.
