Have you quite normalised relations with Potyaev? Have you erased every trace of the squabble? That is imperative.
I am not blaming you for the squabble, but someone (? who?) on the Collegium of the People’s Commissariat for Food. I don’t know who was chiefly to blame. I think your fault lies in weakness: you should have found the squabbler and given him a severe drubbing in public, letting me sign a paper issuing him a reprimand. I believe there is a trouble-maker on the Collegium of the People’s Commissariat for Food!
With communist greetings,
