The Allied hoops, invading Rinsia1 have so often been told that if they are taken prisoner they will be tortured and killed by the bolabevilss. that it is interesting to see what in fact happens when an English soldier falls into the hands of the Russian workmen a and peasants army. Here is the letter of a private of the Royal Scots taken prisoner last month near Archangel.
To the Men of the Royal Scots Kontlas, Monday, Oct. H, 1913. wonder if you all know the kind men you arc ﬁghting. do. You are ﬁghting an army of workin men, and there or: no aﬁcrrs amongst them. Everyb u the same. They ask, why do we fight them. Wel. that is more than can my; in Incl. don know why we have come Io ﬁght them, and another thing that counts is, they don want to ﬁght us. They are nal ﬁghting their own class, the working class, but the capitalists Russia and all countries. Since have been a prisoner hate been treated as one of themselves, and given me plrnty to cal and drink. have also seen one our men that lie: in the hospital wounded. He tells me that he has been irell treoled and looked alter or o lriend, a working man, and not a soldier. New ask you this question; is it right, that the u arkingclos: of one country should come and ﬁght the iu orking class of another country? We are not at war will! Russia, and the Russians are no: at war with iu, but with the capitalist: all the countries, the people whom we work for and keep in plenty, while we, the working class, merely exist. the working class knew why they ari fighting and for who they would refuse to ﬁght any longer. Think things over and ask yourselves, is it worth while killing each other so please other people, who care not what happens, as long or their pockets are b21115 ﬁlled or our expense. From what have seen the Russians are a good people and they are ﬁghting for a good cause, a cause that every country in the world should follow. vaer Lsmnt, ltrrH Rom. Scars.
The following item is taken from Saziole Pros is: You think only to provoke trouble. You are only trying to deceive the ignorant people Don you suppose we have wives, mothers, sisters and daughters of our own?
