Dear Comrade Kayurov;
I have received your letter of 1.III.21, concerning the tax.
In the meantime (while your letter was en route), the tax has already been passed by the Tenth Party Congress and by the All-Russia Central Executive Committee. You must know about this from the papers.
Write me from time to time of your local impressions. How have the Siberian peasants met the tax? What are their other demands and feelings? How are things with the workers?
 On the envelope, the following is written in Lenin’s hand: “To Comrade V. Kayurov. Kolchugino railway project. City of Tomsk (from Lenin).”—Ed.
