Transcript Ah, the faith of those Russian workers! It is so strong that it communicates itself to others. All of us who saw and felt it came away with our own faith surer and stronger. One afternoon I heard a band playing in the street outside the hotel where I was living. I looked out the window and saw a big parade marching with banners flying. I took a Russian comrade with me and we followed the parade. It wound up at the labor temple with a mass meeting. There were enthusiastic speeches, the band played the International and the crowd sang it.

The afternoon wore away and turned to dusk. It was six o'clock and we grew tired of standing and had to leave; and still the workers of Petrograd were coming by the thousands, carrying their revolutionary banners and singing the International.
