Today I am sending a dispatch to Pestun; take a copy of it from Glyasser. If there is also need for a C.C. directive, let me have a draft of the whole text of the directive.
Return this to the C.P.C. Business Manager.
I propose that you should carry out the directives of Svidersky and Reske in the most precise manner. I have information concerning a number of breaches by you of the rules of the central authority in the sphere of the People’s Commissariat for Food work. I warn you that I will hold you personally responsible if even a single breach of the rules and decisions of the centre is established, and if you fail to organise correct and concerted work together with Reske. Reply in a couple of words by telegram and give details by letter.
 Written on a telegram from A. I. Svidersky, a member of the Collegium of the People’s Commissariat for Food and All-Russia C.E.C. agent for Gomel Gubernia, to N. P. Bryukhanov, Deputy People’s Commissar for Food, reporting the non-fulfilment of warrants from the People’s Commissariat, for Food by Kh. G. Pestun, Chairman of the Gomel Gubernia Executive Committee.
