The Ambassador in Italy ( Page ) to the Secretary of State


2111. French Ambassador has expressed to me the hope that immediate answer to Central Empires be made to prevent spread of idea that armistice will be granted, of which great danger here. I unite in this view. There have been demonstrations of workmen and others in Milan, Bologna, Padua, Florence, Leghorn proclaiming peace. Ministers inform me demonstrations all now ended and Government has things in hand.
