Gubernia Food Commissar
Copy to Muss, Co-operative Department
Copy to the Gubernia Committee of the Communist Party
For the amount of friction and misunderstanding with the co-operatives, Samara holds first place. I am surprised that implementation of the decree of March 20 has not yet been arranged. I order strict adherence to the instructions of the People’s Commissariat for Food. Report what has been obstructing your work, who instituted the commission which dismissed Chairman Mikhailov and other co– operators and on what grounds it is operating. Instead of fighting individuals, to the annoyance of the co-operative movement, concentrate efforts on political preparation for the new elections.
Chairman, Council of People’s Commissars
