Comrade Sokolnikov:

Please write to me, 

1) whether you have received and read Comrade Belov’s note: “Plan for Financial Campaign until the New Harvest of 1922”, and your opinion.

2) How is supervision of the collection of cash taxes arranged?

Give the facts on one page. What about the 10–day reports? telegraphic or postal?

How many gubernias submit accurate reports?

Average percentage of arrears and from—to?

3) What is the arrangement for the State Bank’s supervision over our lousy state trusts, in which adroit swindlers dupe conscientious and totally canonised Communists, chairmen of boards, etc.?[1]

With communist greetings,
