s ; "great military achievement," Secre

; | "The news of the taking of Sedan
i i is very good news," said I.ir. Baker,
i "It is a great military achievement.
.| At our last report the Americans
s i were at a distance, I believe, of live
j or six miles from £>edan, in the most
. ! difficult country along the western
; ! front, except the flooded territory in
. j Flanders.
1 "The advance of Pershing's army
i from the 28th day of September to
the first of November, slow, difficult,
| in the face of tremendous opposition
j and against the strongest kind of
i positions, and its very much more
i rapid advance, including the taking
| of Sedan, if that ulace actually has
.! fallen, is as tine a military aehieve
j i nient in a limited area as has taken
, 1 place in the war at any time."
