Private Diary of Aleksi Airo
July 8th, 1946
It seems that Nihtilä and Haahti had the right idea. Seems the weapons caches I am alleged to have been involved with will be useful after all if President Paasikivi's policies fail. If they do, I have no doubt that Mannerheim will trotted out again to save the country. I was allowed a visit from General Walden today. Seems Mannerheim and he have spoken with the president about these charges. He wasn't able to say anymore so we'll see what happens.
Supplemental: I have just returned from the Governor's office, it seems I am to be released into General Waldens custody along with Nihtilä and Haahti. I hope that the Fatherland is not in the dire straights it appears for this to happen. I would happily spend the rest of my life in this prison if it meant that only Finland's peril sets me free.
