1393. Press declares that Orlando’s visit to London entirely satisfactory, Orlando says same. The Paris conference, however, was called on the initiative of Lloyd George who telegraphed calling it as soon as he knew that Orlando was on the way to England. I hear on good authority Lloyd George satisfied Orlando, telling him that one does not go into details in public speeches but that England does not repudiate treaties.
