Telegram to the Parliament of Finland
The white Olonets has risen and shook the red oppression from own shoulders. Thousands men of Olonets organize into their own Civil Guard. Many Finnish brothers voluntarily joined to our white army. You have influence in the big world, so deliver us urgently bread and support our efforts to finally free ourselves from the violence and chaos of the Bolshevik empire.
Olonets City, May Day 1919
