'Whatever happens in the west,' says
this article, 'Russia and we will con

Petit Parisian asserts that Germany
intends to tell the Russian and Eng

then be ready to make peace with you
at the expense of France.' But this
assertion is false, and the facts will
demonstrate, how false they are!
"We are at war with France, be
