I enclose material on the S.K.F. concession (Bogdanov has the contract and the other material).
You are aware of this matter.
Please return this to me with your opinion.
You will recall that you objected to it over the warehouse.
Couldn’t we do it this way: find the form (suitable, convenient) for two transactions: under one transaction, the S.K.F. will purchase the whole warehouse from us. (Recognition of our title: that is the essence, after all.)
Under the other—we shall buy from them items to the amount stated in the contract.
As a result, we pay them this amount. Is it possible to ensure our interests in any other way? I doubt it.
With communist greetings,
