Serebrovsky should not take offence at the tone of my telegram: I was worried over the future of Baku. I consider Serebrovsky a most valuable worker. I demand that you keep me supplied with exact information about the results of the work in improving the oil industry in Baku, and also about the results of foreign trade operations. Let Serebrovsky see this telegram.
 Written on the reverse side of G. K. Orjonikidze’s telegram to Lenin of June 11, 1921. Orjonikidze informed him that A. P. Serebrovsky regarded Lenin’s telegram of June 6 (see this volume, Documents 198 and 201) as an expression of mistrust in him and was planning to resign, and advised Lenin to send Serebrovsky a telegram to calm him down.
