To Hanecki: draft a reply.
To Hanecki: this text will not do. It must be worded thus: you have been promised so many millions within such-and-such a period. We dispatched such-and-such an amount to you on such-and-such a date and will send so much more on such-and-such a date.
Draw up a text on these lines at once.
 J. Hanecki, a member of the Board of the People’s Commissariat for Finance, was to draft a reply to Rakovsky’s telegram received by Lenin on July 16,1919, requesting the dispatch of money that had been promised in connection with the acute financial crisis in the Ukraine. Hanecki drew up the following reply: “Today 300 is being sent, of which 50 are assigned for Kaluga. In future, consignments will be made regularly.” = On Hanecki’s reply Lenin __PRINTERS_P_515_COMMENT__ 17* wrote his second note and marked at the top of the document “Reply to Rakovsky”.
