pledge. Atd f'rom thlis, l',fllowed the others: war was to be
abolished; armies and fleets were to be disarined; amniexationi
of' territory" was to be allowed to no ntin,,: thlie seas were to be
free; diplomacy was to be 'open and puibl". All this lie prom

has been victorious, they must lprive that all lthese pledges
have been kept and woi.
