Copy to the Pravda Printing-Press.
Please inform me how you account for such bad printing of Pravda as No. 231 for 16/X, enclosed herewith. Since I shall be raising this question in the Council of People’s Commissars, I ask you to supply me urgently with information as to what measures you are taking and what guarantees there are for an improvement of the present position.
V. Ulyanov (Lenin)
Chairman, Council of People’s Commissars
