People’s Commissariat for Finance
Considering that the press, both Soviet and Party, had earlier, namely, in connection with the Glavzemkhozexhibition from September 18 to 25, 1921, unanimously assessed Comrade Runov’s work as being exceptionally successful in founding proletarian agriculture, and considering that this assessment had been confirmed by a decision of the Council of Labour and Defence of 30/IX–1921, I think that Runov’s enclosed application should be unconditionally and fully satisfied.
I ask Comrade Sokolnikov to reply to me without delay, in substance, through Comrade Gorbunov.
