Will you please give instructions for a little extra food to be supplied in general (and that mentioned below in particular) to the following comrades:
The first has come to help the Soviet government. He is our guest. Assistance is essential.
The second is a founder of Finnish Social-Democracy. An old man. The Finns helped us very considerably before 1905. It is now our duty to help them:
1) Keeley, an American engineer, who has come to help
the Soviet government
(in particular, sugar, chocolate, confectionery).
Hotel National, No. 321.
2) Ursin (founder of Finnish Social-Democracy).
Hotel Metropole, No. 471
(in particular, butter).
