12 September 1943
1. A change in circumstances - and in particular the dissolution of
the "BIG HOUSE [BOL'ShOJ DOM]" [i] - necessitates a change in
the method used by the workers of our residencies to kieep in
touch with the leaders of the local FELLOWCOUNTRYMEN
[ZEMLYaChESKIJ] [ii] organizations on intelligence matters.
2. Our workers, by continuing to meet the leader of the
FELLOWCOUNTRYMEN, are exposing themselves to danger and
are giving cause [1 group unidentified] [b] I ocal authorities to
suspect that the "BIG HOUSE" is still in existence.
3. We propose:
a. That personal contact with leaders of the local
FELLOWCOUNTRYMEN organizations should cease and that
FELLOWCOUNTRYMEN material should not be accepted for
forwarding to the "BIG HOUSE."
b. That meetings of our workers may take place only with
special reliable undercover [ZAKONSPIRIROVANNYJ]
contacts of the FELLOWCOUNTRYMEN [D% organizations],
who are not suspected by the [1 group unidentified] [b]
local authorities, exclusively about specific aspects of our
intelligence work (acquiring [1 group unidentified]
contacts, leads [NAVODKI], rechecking of those who are
being cultivated, etc.). For each meeting it is necessary to
obtain our consent.
[1 group unrecovered]
[1 group missing]
representative of the Soviet Union.
Notes: [a] This message is known to have been sent also to NEW
YORK, SAN FRANCISCO, and OTTAWA.
