From the Secretary of State to the

Department of State,
November 5, 1918.
I have the honor to request you to
transmit the following communicatien
to the German governmdnt:
"In my note of October 23, 191.'.
1 advised you that the president ha:
transmitted his correspondlence with
the German authorities to the goverr:
ment- with which the government e
the United States is assaciated as a
helligerent, with the suggestion th.t
if those governments were disposed
to effect peace upon the terms arni
principles indicated their military ai
visers and the military advisers of
the United States be asked to submat
to the government' associated again.,
Germany the necessary terms of such
an armistice as would fuly protest

mencts the unrestricted power to saf
guard and enforce the details of tI
peace to which the German gover
ment had agreed, providel they denr.
id such an armistic:' possible fr
the military point of view.
''The president is now in r'ceipt of.
memorandum of observations by ti'
allied governments on this correspor
ence, which is as follows:
" 'The allied governments have gi
en careful consideration to the co.
r'espoilde'nce which has passed lhe
tween the president of the United
States and the German government.
Subject to the qualificat ions which
follow they declare their willingne.
to make peace with the government !
Germany on the terms of peace with
the government of Germany on ti .
terms of peace laid down in the pre:
dent's address to congress o .1 aniuaty,
1918, and the principles of settlemer.t
enunciated in his subsequent addre
es. They must point out, howv(-,
that clause two relating to what
usually described as the freedom
the seas, is open to various interpr -
tations, some of which they could not.
accept. They must, therefore, reser'v(
to themselves complete freedom on
this subject when they enter the pea:.
" Further, in the conditions of peac'e
laid down in his address to Congress
of January 8, 1918, the president dt
clareci that invaded territories mu t
he restored as well as evacuated ar
freed, the allied governments feel that
no doubt ought to b ailowed to exist
as to what this provision implies. BY
it they understand that compensatitn
will be made by Germany for all ic .
age done to the civila population of
the allies and their p, operty by the
agr'ression of Germany by lan-d, I':
sea and from the air.' "
I am instructed by the president ti

interpretation set forth in the last
