Transcript WHAT'S TO BE DONE? 55 1 ( into ice, it suddenly turned a whole series of similar impressions I had received before, into a definite and indubitable conviction. After my talk with them, I saw clearly that all the crimes the Government is now committing in order to crush the Revolution, not only fail to crush it, but inflame it the more ; and that if the Revolutionary movement appears for a time to die down under the cruelties of the Government, it will not be destroyed, but will merely be temporarily hidden, and will inevitably spring up again with new and increased strength.

And a couple of days ago the following happened : When I was out riding, a young man in a pea-jacket and wearing a curious blue cap with a straight crown, who was driving
