Additional Details

"I had hoped that by this time you would have learned not to believe everything you read in the papers. There are no differences in the Cabinet. I am sorry that once again the papers raised up a straw man in which even the straw is synthetic.
"I am much interested in the quotations from General Morgan. They constitute a real contribution to some of the things we are about to face. However, it may be some time before the Germans are beaten!"
