Comrade Bryukhanov:

It now remains to work out practical proposals:

Sell the People’s Commissariat for Food so much?

For commodity exchange for grain give (on credit?) so much on such-and-such terms?

Use warehouses in this way?

Agreement on such terms?

27/II. Lenin

Comrade Gorbunov:

Send this off and keep track.

27/II. Lenin


[1] This was written in_connection with a letter from M. I. Frumkin, Deputy People’s Commissar for Food, on February 20, 1922, who objected to the plan for trading in salt, which he believed to be wrong. Frumkin requested that the reply to his letter should be sent to Bryukhanov.

N. P. Bryukhanov, replying on March 6 to Lenin’s note, wrote that the People’s Commissariat for Food had organised the trade in salt “in the very direction” suggested by Lenin. Bryukhanov reported the preparation of an agreement with the Supreme Economic Council and other measures (Central Party Archives of the Institute of Marxism-Leninism of the C.P.S.U. Central Committee).
