Extracts from Letters

"I beg to acknowledge with warm thanks the receipt of the volumes of The Christian Science Monitor, which arrived in good condition, thanks to the excellent manner in which they were packed. These will certainly form a very valuable part of the collection of the War Library and Museum of the French Government."

[The following was published in The Nation, New York, June 15, 1918: The French Government has established in Paris a library and museum in which will be collected all the material needed by the historians of the present war. The authorities hope to collect in this country all the information relating to the activities of the United States, whether governmental or private, since the beginning of the conflict in 1914, and especially everything that relates to the part taken by the United States in the war itself since the declaration of war in 1917. The history of public opinion during these eventful years is almost as important as the narrative of military and governmental activity. As funds are very limited, the French Government will appreciate the contribution of documents and periodicals bearing on this subject.]
