Memorandum of the Third Assistant Secretary of State ( Long)


The French Ambassador called this afternoon and said that he had had two cables from his Government directing him to lay certain matters before the President. The matters deal with certain secret proposals for peace which the Central Powers are making and of which the French Government has definite and positive information to substantiate. I told him that I would take the matter up with the White House and let him know at the earliest opportunity.
