I propose that we get the votes of the Politbureau members to have a vote without delay on the following proposal (about which I have already had a short preliminary exchange with Stalin and Kamenev, and Zinoviev):
1) Put upon Comrade Rudzutak the duty to start out immediately for a sanatorium and not to leave it until the congress, strictly keeping to the established regimen.
2) Put the duty upon Dr. ... (what is the name of the one who is working at the C.C.? And if lie is not there, then upon Semashko) to arrange at once a high-calory diet and treatment against TB for Rudzutak, in one of the better sanatoriums, to give him a chance to receive as much treatment as possible and rest, before the Party Congress and the plenary meeting (24/III).
With communist greetings,
 A reference to the Eleventh Congress of the R.C.P.(B.).—Ed.
 That same day, Lenin’s proposal was adopted by the Politbureau of the R.C.P.(B.) C.C. It instructed Comrade Voitsik to organise medical treatment and a high-caloric diet for Y. E. Rudzutak.
