Comrade Pyatakov, Head of the Central Fuel Administration
Copy to the State Planning Commission Presidium
In view of the large appropriations for Gidrotorf, your Glavtorf estimates should have some released credits, which had been earmarked for Gidrotorf before this appropriation went through.
It is my request that you devote special attention, through the use of a part of these released credits, to intensifying the working of peat in the area of the projected construction site of the Ivanovo-Voznesensk District Electric-Power Station, about which there are appropriate decisions taken by the Presidium of the S.P.C. in December 1921 and in February 1922.
Chairman, Council of People’s Commissars
