471. To President Wilson:

Sir: We hope you include Russia, while replying to Germany’s request for armistice, among Powers whose territories [are] to be cleared of invaders, since we have repudiated treaty of Brest Litovsk and continued at war with Central Powers. We consider ourselves allies of you and other Allied Powers. Signed, President Government Northern Russia, member Ufa Directory of Five, Nicholas Tchaikowski.
