Please give me your comments.
It is essential, as a matter of the greatest urgency, to prepare a plan for a tractor campaign.
1) Purchase abroad
2) Production in Russia
Be sure to let me know in a day or so, when you will present a preliminary memorandum. (Should not a conference he convened at once?)
 This refers to the comments on a memorandum received by the Council of People’s Commissars from V. D. Batyushkov, head of the State Agricultural Museum, member of the Council and Chairman of the Board of the All-Russia Chamber of Agriculture, and G. Frolov, member of the Chamber, “On the Use of Mechanical Power (Tractors) in Performing Agricultural Work (Ploughing and Harvesting)”.
