I have received your report of 23/VI.[1]

This business must be finished at all costs, and not later than this summer. Yesterday, Basha tabled some of your wishes in the C.P.C., and after being co-ordinated, they will be adopted.[2]

Draw up as precise a calendar programme of the necessary reforms as you can. Let me have it (after co-ordinating it with Basha or Alsky, better with both) and inform me once a week about its execution.

With communist greetings,


[1] In his report on June 23, 1921, G. I. Bokii informed Lenin of the measures taken by him to prevent stealing at the State Depository of Valuables (Gokhran). At the same time, Bokii sent Lenin a copy of the preliminary report, submitted by a commission which had made an inquiry into its work, and containing the proposals for improving it. On July 8, Lenin was sent a calendar plan for work to reorganise Gokhran.

[2] A reference to the draft decision, “On Classifying the Work of Gokhran as Urgent”, which the People’s Commissariat for Finance introduced in the C.L.D. on June 24, 1921. It was adopted by the C.L.D. on June 29.
