Excerpt from France Bears the Burden

You have happily explained how this identity of our national spirit and democracy is re?ected in the special discipline of the French army, an army of a free people under a discipline of intelligence, a discipline, fair, humane, and fraternal.

This you have seen in France. All those Ameri cans who have seen what you have seen with us, are thus convinced of the absolute agreement of minds and aims which the participation by the American democracy in the war reveals and will reveal be tween your nation and our nation, between your army and our army.

From the close co-operation of the French and American armies on our soil, we can further expect, out of the war, other results of great importance. Between America and France only one thing is lacking: to know each other better. In the past, dis tance has hindered the establishment between us, people to people, of the personal contact; I mean to say a contact between the mass of Americans and French.
