I have known the author for more than 20 years. A most loyal revolutionary. His sister (or two?) are working for us and, everyone says, are doing it selflessly and splendidly. I believe, he has quite deserved our help. I earnestly request you not to be angry over his nervousness (the man is worn out) and to help him in every possible way.
 Written on a letter from P. N. Lepeshinsky to Lenin of January 26, 1921, requesting assistance in obtaining living quarters.
