Is it possible to bring out more detailed data on the distribution of Communists by Soviet government office (except the Red Army):
with more details about nature and type of work.
Let’s have this for Moscow, at least (the most important thing is to separate Moscow from the uyezd, if possible; Moscow is the main centre), and for Petrograd.
My impression is that the statistics of the R.C.P. members deal with too many details, which are “common” to any statistics, but are unimportant. The important thing for us is to have details about the distribution by Soviet government office.
With communist greetings,
 Written in connection with statistical material received from the C.C. Secretariat about R.C.P.(B.) members. A reply letter from N. I. Solovyov, Head of the Statistical Department, on September 8, 1921, reported that the material on Moscow and Petrograd Communists in Soviet government office would be sent to Lenin shortly.
