Dear Sergei Sergeyevich! Today marks the completion of three years of service of the Revolution by you in the post of Commander-in-Chief. These years have been hard, and your service was hard. But the results can be seen: Workers’ and Peasants’ Russia has been defended, and the Red Army has learnt from the past and is preparing for the future. I strongly wish you health and good cheer, for ahead there still stretches a long road of revolutionary service and struggle.

I cordially shake your hand.

Yours truly, L. Trotsky
