“The famous murderer Stalin was never a general”

TLS signed “A. Kerensky,” one page, 8.5 x 11, Stanford University letterhead, May 24, 1966. Letter to Reverend Cornelius Greenway. In part: “I. L. Goremikin belonged to high society in St. Petersburg, was highly educated, but a classical bureaucrat of old time. In first days of February Revoluyion [sic] he was arrested by a group of young revolutionaries and remained confined for 2 or 3 weeks with other dignitaries. He was liberated by me personally and a few weeks later he left Petersburg with his wife Anna. He like others went to Kislovods in Caucasus. Few months later the Goremikins with other refugees from Petersburg were robbed and killed by local mob (brigands). My dear friend, the famous murderer Stalin was never a general. This title did not even exist in the Soviet Russia until the Second World War. Stalin joined the Bolshevik party when very young, when he was a student in the theological seminary in Tiflis. Before the World War I and later he became one of the most close callaborators [sic] of Lenin. Unfortunately after all the tragedies in the world during our life the future remains very dark, unless the new generation will be able to reorganize life on principles of brotherhood and real peace.” In fine condition. Kerensky was the provisional leader of the Soviet Union from July to November 1917, when he was unseated by Lenin and forced into exile in the October Revolution. Excellent content concerning the Russian Revolution. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
