"THE WEATHER WAS VERY COLD" Commenting upon Petrograd, Lincoln Eyre, special correspondent of the New York World, wrote in an article printed in that paper on March 8, 1920, as follows: English papers published in their issue of Dec. 27 the following alleged description, under a Stockholm date, of Christmas in Petrograd: "According to telegrams received by way of Finland, the people of Petrograd passed a very desolate Christmas, being without food or fuel, while spotted typhus and Spanish influenza were rampant. The sanitary conditions of the city baffle description. The water supply is frozen, so that water from the Neva or melted snow has been used for drinking purposes. The weather is very cold and kitchen furniture is being burned as fuel. "Only one disinfectant is obtainable and only four infirmaries are open. Bands of robbers frequently visit unoccupied premises, and the authorities are quite powerless against these marauders, who carry off everything left by the Red Guards. Misery is so great in Petrograd that the inhabitants are contemplating death as a relief." I was in Petrograd several days before, during and after Christmas week. From my own comprehensive observation, I say without hesitation that the only accurate statement contained in the above dispatch is contained in these words: "The weather is very cold." While there were a few cases of typhus and Spanish influenza, neither of these diseases was "rampant." Sanitary conditions were as good as could as could possibly be extected in a city that a short time before had had an enemy at its gates. The water supply was not frozen and there was no necessity to burn kitchen furniture, since everybody had enough fuel for cooking purposes at least. 29
