During their retreat of 1915 the Russians forcibly evacuated a considerable proportion of the Polish population and destroyed the habitations so as to leave a barren desert to the enemy. Now these refugees are straggling back through the Polish lines into Poland and it was estimated that between a million and a quarter and a million and a half would return from Russia and Siberia between June and the coming of winter.” October 29, 1919 (date received).
