2265. Your 3884, July 5, 9 p.m. It seems obvious that the German peace plan is to sacrifice in the west in order to obtain a vast incalculable gain in the east. Herron’s attention might be called to the fact that the Eastern Question is not dealt with in the Bavarian tentative peace program and told that a discussion of a settlement which did not put all the Russian, Turkish, and Eastern cards on the table was not even remotely possible.
