    TO THE TRADE UNION COMMITTEE
    AND ALL WORKERS
    OF THE FIRST STATE MOTOR WORKS
    [
    89]

    Dear comrades,
        Comrade Smirnov, Chairman of your Trade Union Committee, has informed me of the production of motors and has invited me to attend the ceremony on April 7.
        Please accept my congratulations, comrades, on the success of your efforts and the anniversary of the courses for mechanics. With all my heart, I wish you vigorous pursuit of your work, in which you are sure to score further succcsses. They are of especial significance from the standpoint of the whole mass of workers and peasants, because the development of motor production in Russia, with her abundant oil resources, holds out the possibility of organising the supply of peasant farms with efficient and low-cost machines. You must do all you can to make motor manufacture an even greater success.
        With best wishes and communist greetings,

    Lenin
