XotcThis letter is warning of the slow rising but coming storm that will sweep ilvesc boldest pirates of history froM tha country they Irate temporarily stolen. To pet a real understanding of the ineaiciiiii of the second, and important section of ihe letter, it must be pointed out that until February 1, the Russian calendar was If days behind the Western European calendar. The real dale of this letter, therefore, is February 10. This is the date Trotzky's "A'o peoee: tio icir" pronouncement was made at Brest-Litovsk. The news of it did not reach even Petrograd until the next day. Yet on that day printed circulars were being distributed at the front stating that Trot-ky had agreed I to do the very thing he did do, and giving an augury of events that did take place a week later when Germany did begin its advance and when the Bolshe- viks did fulfill all demands. The fact is that simple truth was being told. Xor is the means by which its was secured at all obscure. A few daring and skillful Russians had found a means to get information from Brest-Litovsk.
