Young plan for reparations, he was met
with the retort by the foreign minister
that "France will go to The Hague with
the firm hope to have the Young plan
adopted, thanks to the complete accord

neither The Hague nor at London will
questions of the security 9t peace and

resenting the French people will speak
at The Hague and speak in a spirit of
conciliation,” Briand said in his defense.
