The" text of Secretary Lansing's
"In Tny note of October 23. 1918,
Kadvised you that the president had
transmitted his correspondence with
the German authorities to, the gov
ernments with which the govern
ment the United States is asso
ciated as a biligfrent, with the sub
gestion that,-if these governments
were disposed to accept reace upon
the terms and-principles indicated,
their military advisers and the mil
itary advisers of the United States
be asked to submit to the govern
ments associated against Germany
the he necessary terms of such an
armistice as would fully protect the
interests of t(je peoples involved and
insure to ;the associated govern
ments the -unrestricted power to
safeguard and enforce the. details of
the neace to which the uerrrttn
government had agreed, provided
thev deemisuch an armistice possi
ble from the military point of view.
"The president is now in receipt
of a memorandum ol observations
by the allied, governments on this
correspondence, which is as fallows
Willing to Make Peae. ,
"'The allied eovernments have
given careful consideration to the
correspondence which has passed
between the president of the United
States and the German government.
Subect to the qualifications which
follow, they declare their 'willingness
to make peate with the government
of Germany on the terms of peace
laid down in the president's address
to congres of January. 1918, and
the principles of settlement enun
ciated in his subsequent addresses.
They must point out, however,
that clause two, relating to what, is
usually described as Jthe freedom of
tne seas, is open to various inter
pretations, some of which they
couldjiot accept. They must, there
fore, reserve to themselves . com
plete freedom on this subject when
they enferthe peace conference.
"'Further, in the conditions ot
peace hid down in his address to
congress of January 8, 1918, the
president declared that invaded ter
ritories nust be restored as well as
tvaoiiated and freed. The allied gc
ernments feel that no doubt ght
to be allowed to exist as to what
this provision implies. By it they
understand that compensation will
be made by Geermany for all dam
age done to the civilian population
cf the allies and their property by
the aggression of Germany by land.
by sea and from the air.
"I am instructed by the president
to say that he is in agreement with
the interpretation set forth in the
last paragraph of the memorandum
to notify the German government
that Marshal Foch has been author
ized by the governent of the United
