I think the editor of Selskokhozyaistvennaya Zhizn should be removed, and Vainstein and Oganovsky placed under special surveillance. Such is my conclusion after reading Selskokhozyaistvennaya Zhizn No. 34 (75). Show this letter in strict secrecy to Comrades Yakovenko and Teodorovich (the latter is especially to blame) and return to me with the addition of information about the editor, A. N. Morosanov (?), and the other two in greater detail. Their record, etc., in more detail. They are probably Right-wing S.R.s to whom you three “have fallen” victim.
What measures are you three taking to prevent a repetition of this?
