Lenin arrived in Petrograd from his exile in Switzerland April 16, 1917. The following day he presented his views at a meeting of Bolshevik members of the national conference of Soviets of Workers’ and Soldiers’ Deputies in the form of theses published afterward under the title “The Tasks of the Proletariat in the Present Revolution” (pp. 32-36). These theses, known in Bolshevik annals as the “April Theses,” were in the main a succinct formulation of the views expressed in his “Letters from Afar.” (See Little Lenin Library, Vol. 8.)
