100 years ago in COUNTRY LIFE
October 14, 1916
TO our Russian readers: To the staff of COUNTRY LIFE it has been a labour of love to prepare an edition of this journal devoted to Russia. The labour was dignified by a great object. This is to promote and improve the good relations now established between Britain and her great Ally… Russia, above all else, is a land of dreams and ideas. To bring out the leading characteristics on paper is not easy, but we have a proverb in this country that if you strive for a silk gown you will, maybe get the sleeve of it, and we shall be very content if in these pages our Russian friends find traces of an effort that is always sincere even when it may stumble.
