Of the 5 weeks I spent in Soviet Russia ten days have been spent in Moscow and 8 in Petrograd. the rest of the time I traveled alongside the Western entrance, from the Esthonian border to Moghilev, with leisurely stops at Pskov, Vitebsk, Polotzk, Smolensk, and diverse small cities. i attempted to determine up to attainable of this large and unknown land within the little while at my disposal, and that i attempted specially to ascertain up from first-hand remark a number of the many stuff I had heard at the outdoor. I additionally attempted to check the reality of what was once advised me in Russia itself,—to locate seen proof of the equity of the claims made. a few renowned fancies have been speedy dispelled. Disproof of others got here occasionally in vividly concrete fashion.

Soviet Russia isn't unanimously Bolshevist, from now on than the us has ever been unanimously Democratic or Republican, or Prohibitionist. The speculators are usually not Bolshevist, nor are the irreconcilable bourgeoisie, nor the Monarchists, nor the Cadets nor the Menshevists, nor the Social Revolutionists and Anarchists. however Russia stands overwhelmingly in aid of the Soviet govt, simply because the usa stands overwhelmingly in help of Congress and the structure. there are numerous who're against Soviet rule in its current shape, and this competition isn't really restrained to the outdated bourgeoisie and the anarchists. It prevails to a definite extent—variously estimated—among the peasants. however it is an competition which ceases on the army frontier of the country. i discovered many critics of Soviet rule inside of Soviet Russia, yet they insisted that no matter what alterations are to be made within the executive needs to be made with no overseas interference. at the moment their first curiosity is the defence of Russian soil and the Russian country opposed to overseas attack and international interference.

The peasant competition is principally as a result deficiencies in transportation and the dearth of synthetic articles. They blame this at the govt, a lot as different peoples lay their issues to “the government.” The peasants are reluctant to renounce their grain for paper funds that is of no price to them until it's going to purchase footwear and fabric and salt and tools,—and of those must haves there will not be adequate to move around. whereas the blockade persevered the govt. was once striving vigorously to beat the dearth of synthetic articles caused by means of the blockade, figuring out that this by myself may fulfill the peasants. They claimed to have made encouraging growth, particularly within the creation of agricultural equipment, of which they have been attempting to have the most important attainable offer prepared through spring.

Whatever the mind set of the peasants, they're definitely materially than the town staff. In all of the villages I visited i discovered the peasants faring far better than have been the Commissars in Moscow. they'd abundant provides of fine rye bread on their tables, with butter and eggs and milk,—almost unknown luxuries within the towns. Their livestock regarded good fed and good cared for. It was once harvest time and the farmers have been collecting of their vegetation. They advised me that the season have been awfully bountiful.

I realized after my go back to the US that there have been loads of agitation one of the upholders of the previous Russian order during this state final summer season and early fall over the pogroms which have been acknowledged to were carried on through the Bolsheviki. i discovered not anything yet cooperation and sympathy and realizing among the Russians and the Jews. there has been no discrimination whatever, so far as i may see. Jews and Russians percentage alike within the councils of the Soviet executive and within the factories and workshops.

In truth i discovered not anything however the utmost kindness and stable will in the direction of the full international, throughout Russia. "If they're going to in simple terms allow us to on my own they've got not anything to worry from us,—not even propaganda,"—was stated to me time and again. there have been no threats made opposed to the interventionists.
