"The question could be asked when
the British government,- which no
douty has not measured the danger of
these systematic violations, would step
in the path of concessions. France, in
any case, was obliged to say: 'That Is

"The French government is no less
convinced than the English govern

application of the treaty with Ger

entirely disposed, before acting, to be1
assured of the consent of the allies
in all inter-allied questions which the
execution of the treaty raises. 1
