Please inform Comrade Radchenko that I am very much afraid of any mistakes in this matter: how can I sign any technical conclusions? This should be sent to the departments for their endorsement and speeded up in passage through the Narrow C.P.C. or through the C.L.D. I can help in speeding this up in every way.
 I. I. Radchenko asked Lenin to sign the minutes of the Council of the Administration for Hydraulic Peat Extraction (Gidrotof) which, on September 29, 1921, decided to postpone the date of the Gidrotorf orders for caterpillar cranes from March 1 to May 1. 1922.
The register of C.P.C. and C.L.D. assignments contains an entry dated October 3, which says: “Find out: = 1) whether Vladimir Ilyich has the juridical right to sign personally, without the C.P.C. and C.L.D.; = 2) whether Vladimir Ilyich has to endorse the Gidrotorf Council minutes of September 29, as I. I. Radchenko requests. Fulfilled October 3” (Istorichesky Arkhiv No. 5, 1961, p. 43).
