Ben Turner et al. in Petrograd (now Saint Petersburg), Russia - 11 May, 1920, at night
from About Myself, 1863–1930, page 215:
We arrived at Petrograd (now Leningrad) at midnight, four hours late. What a commotion there was! Twenty thousand folks were assembled at the station with bands and banners to meet and greet us. What a brave sight it was to see these famine-logged artisans in their joy at being visited by their trade union folks from Britain.
