I have received your packets, yesterday’s and today’s, and must point out your incorrect dispatch of business.
All such matters must be agreed with the People’s Commissar (now with Radchenko).
To have business conducted haphazardly by individual members of the collegium is wrong not only under the Constitution, but also in essence, and tends to introduce red tape and chaos.
V. Ulyanov (Lenin)
 A reference to the theses and letter of M. V. Rykunov, Chairman of the Extraordinary Commission for Export.
