that i thought perhaps Pres. Wilson knew the facts better than was generally known to the public. I told her that I knew of an American Sgt. who wrote an officer last winter that he was heartily sick of the war and was willing to see it settled anyway. I said that I knew a great many French & English soldiers felt the same way about it and that it was at that time a grave question as to whether the men could be kept in the tranches another winter. Its a matter of fact many of the French in the Southern part (Midi) expressed sorrow over our coming saying that we had waited too long. Yes we waited too long, but God knows we more than made up for it.
