30. XII. 1919
Central Collegium of Agitational Centres
I recommend the bearer, Comrade Maria Movshovich, whom I have known personally for many years, as a most loyal Party worker, and I earnestly request that she be treated with complete confidence and given every assistance, in particular that she be allowed just now ten days’ leave of absence to restore her health.
V. Ulyanov (Lenin)
 The Central Collegium of Agitational Centres was established by a decision of the Council of Defence on May 13, 1919, for the purpose of organising centres of agitation and education at railway junctions and troop entrainment points
 On the previous day, December 29, 1919, Lenin received Maria Movshovich in his office in the Kremlin. She had come to Moscow from the front because her husband had fallen ill with typhus and her daughter was left without anyone to look after her. Lenin talked to her about her work in the Red Army and the situation at the front. On the following day he visited her and promised his help in arranging her personal affairs.
