firm determination of all Italy--ariny,
king and country-to continue in the
war until the national aspiratios are
satisfied was emphasized today by

After recapitulating Italy's share in
thle conflict he announced that the
government had adhlered to the agree
ment of Londcin binding the allies not
to conclude a separate peace.
B3ar'on Sonnino declared Greece had
agreed to give the allies sufficient
guaraintees that he would maintain
benevolent neutrality towards them.
