Staff of 5th Army
Thanks. Recovery proceeding excellently. Am sure that the crushing of the Kazan Czechs and whiteguards, as well as of the kulak extortioners supporting them, will be exemplarily ruthless.
 Lenin refers to his recovery from wounds received when an attempt was made on his life by the Socialist-Revolutionary terrorist Fanny Kaplan on August 30, 1918.
His telegram was a reply to a telegram from the leaders of the Political Department of the 5th Army, wishing him a speedy recovery.
