Despite my letter, I have yet to receive a report on the expedition to clarify the Bidder concession. Get such a report from a representative of the commission which has been there by tomorrow, but under no circumstances should it be longer than two pages.
I fear that, as usual, the report will run to a whole tome, which no one will read.
Make formal contact with the chairman of the commission and Krzhizhanovsky, who had given me a host of unfulfilled promises.
 The letter has not been found.—Ed.
 A reference to the C.L.D. commission to examine the enterprises earmarked for lease under a concession, to Leslie Urquhart. See this volume, Document 644.
