The German Embassy to the Department of State 32

If the Government of the United States with the view of saving Europe propose that the powers interested in the Rhine, to wit: France, Great Britain, Italy and Germany solemnly agree among themselves and promise the Government of the United States, that they will not resort to war against each other for a period of one generation without being authorized to do so by a plebiscite of their own people, Germany would not hesitate to enter such an obligation.
