Writing for his fellow-travelers at the semi-monthly journal Soviet Russia,
British socialist George Lansbury (1859 – 1940) recalled his encounter with the Soviet dictator Vladimir Lenin:
"The leader of them all is this man Lenin, with his strongly marked Russian peasant face, who with the indomitable courage characteristic of his people in their age-old struggle for bread, is the man who in dark days and bright - inspires them all."
"I write this of him, not because we are agreed on all things - on some fundamental things we do not agree - but because I think I know a good man when I see one, and can appreciate deeds as well as words."
