To three addresses 1) Regional Economic Council,
2) Avdeyev and Uglanov, Petrograd
Trade Union Council
3) Mikhailov, Executive Committee,
In view of Comrade Mikhailov’s complaints about food bonuses not being issued to workmen on electric ploughs, I request that, considering the importance of manufacturing twenty electric ploughs for the autumn ploughing, the question be settled urgently and agreed. May 27.
Let me have an exact reply.
Chairman, Council of Labour and Defence
 An apparent reference to the non-fulfilment by Petrograd organs of the decision of the Council of Labour and Defence of January 28, 1921, on “Bonuses to Industrial and Office Workers Engaged in the Making of, Electric Ploughs” (see Istorichesky Arkhiv [ Historical Archives], 1956, No. 4, p. 18).
L. M. Mikhailov was chairman of the commission set up under the Petrograd Soviet with the task of distributing orders for electric ploughs among the Petrograd plants and organising their production.
