Comrade Novitsky:

Perhaps, it will be clearer this way:

column 3: actual amount in hand and issued (—),

this will then give below the figure: remaining in hand

+ and next to this

columns 6 and 6 bis, to whom, where, when, whose decision, Then

allocations 4 + 8 + 9

10th in the 4th from the top and then

amount in hand minus allocations, i.e., 5th column.

Such tables (as you have been sending me) must be top secret,[1]

For this, I think, only two copies must be made (one for you+one for me for the Politbureau) without retyping. Add another column: earmarked by the C.C., perhaps under this head:

Earmarked under a report by Comrade Molotov: when earmarked, how much, aim.

With communist greetings,

P.S. Return this to me with your mark and the enclosures.
