File No. 763.72119/8961

The Diplomatic Liaison Officer with the Supreme War Council ( Frazier) to the Secretary of State


146. Prime Ministers are now drafting a note to President Wilson regarding his reply to German peace proposals. The tenor of this reply will be (that the?) evacuation of occupied territories is not sufficient guarantee. Marshal Foch stated before the Prime Ministers that the terms of armistice shift from day to day according to the military situation; in view of the great victory by the British and French troops north of Saint-Quentin yesterday the terms of an armistice tomorrow will be different from those of today. I hope to obtain a copy of this joint note at 6 o’clock tonight and will telegraph it as soon as possible.
