I request that this should be done with special thoroughness, so as to have everything ready in Berlin by 1.II.1922, and delivered in Moscow without fail by 1.III.1922. The reports should be brief, but regular, once a month. The commission should be responsible for the technical verification. Prizes will be awarded, if necessary. See that the opportunity is not missed again, as it has been repeatedly in this matter.
 This letter is written at the bottom of “Instructions to the Provisional Berlin Commission for the Issue of Foreign Orders for Gidrotorf” in the text of which Lenin made a number of markings (see Lenin Miscellany XXIII, p. 92).
R. E. Klasson’s report, addressed to Lenin on February 11, 1922, shows that these orders of the Administration for Hydraulic Peat Extraction (Gidrotorf) were fulfilled in time.
