This matter should be promoted more intensively through Martens, a member of the Supreme Economic Council Presidium.
Give me a reminder on Monday.
 This was written in connection with a resolution sent to Lenin by a general meeting of workers of the Moscow Garment Factory No. 36 named after the Third International (émigrés from America).
They wrote that for a month they had been unable to start their factory equipped with the latest machines and devices which they had brought along from America, and asked Lenin to help them to obtain the materials necessary to complete the equipment of the factory and the repair of the premises, and also to obtain housing.
On June 27, 1921, Lenin signed letters to L. K. Martens and V. T. Likhachov, Chairman of the Moscow Gubernia Economic Council, ordering them to remove all red tape in this matter and to help the émigré workers to start the factory as soon as possible (see Lenin Miscellany XX, p. 201).
