In certain passages I have been compelled to disguise names of those who, first becoming tools of the mock-saint, yet afterwards discovering him to be a charlatan, arose in their patriotism and–like Rajevski who here confesses– watched patiently, and as Revolutionists became instrumental in the amazing charlatan’s downfall and his ignominious death. These startling revelations of the secretary to the head of the ”dark forces” in Russia, as they were known in the Duma, are certainly most amazing and unusually startling, forming as they do a disgraceful secret page of history that will prove of outstanding interest to those who come after us.
