    In this letter to Anna Louise Strong, John Soderman, a Russian immigrant, tells her how moved he is by her public statements. As a Russian, it encourages him to hear an educated American bravely defending the ideals of the Russian revolution. He quotes a remark made by "Dr. Jordan of Stanford" that the "crowning privilege" of the educated person is to see the world clearly and accurately, and implies that the educated are then obligated to help their communities by helping others to acquire the same vision. Soderman admires greatly the work Strong has done to achieve these ends, and praises her commitment. He concludes by expressing confidence that the public will appreciate her work in the long run. less
