The C.C. decision on responsible travelling personnel is a decision of the C.C. Plenary Meeting.
This means that it is not to be questioned.
(Personally, I quite agree with it.)
You yourself, I think, must do some of the travelling.
1) The C.C. apparatus should be reinforced and brought closer to the localities.
2) Your assistants should substitute for you in the gubernia. The young should be promoted.
3) You can (and will have to) make more frequent personal visits to Ivanovo-Voznesensk Gubernia to check up, help, advance candidates in agreement with the Orgbureau, etc,
4) There is no need to be a theoretician. All you need to be is a Party man. You are an economic executive. What we do [need ] is to have economic executives (on behalf of the C.C.) pull up the localities, verify and instruct.
 Written in reply to an inquiry from G. K. Korolyov concerning the advisability of his recall from Ivanovo-Voznesensk in May 1921 to work as a responsible instructor of the R.C.P.(B.) Central Committee for Ivanovo-Voznesensk, Nizhni-Novgorod, Vladimir and Kostroma gubernias.
