and it ain’t wondrous?

“Some time before the war the Austro-Hungarian government received a sharp note from St Petersburg, demanding that a stop be put to the activities of the Russian political emigrants in Vienna. The Minister of the Interior received the note and shook with laughter: ‘Who do they think is going to start a revolution in Russia – perhaps that Herr Trotsky from the Café Central?'” (from Wit as a Weapon by Egon Larsen, 1980, http://www.kirjasto.sci.fi/trotsky.htm)
