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.
