And Bismarck a decision in such event to consider Germany a authorised to reinforce the German army in France immediately to protect our rights a with the demand that prance such expenses. He recited Bismarck s declaration that if the treaty were jeopardised Germany had the full right to make warlike preparations even though they might result in a new War. Which Bismarck warned France would be a sterner one and would end with More extensive and More severe occupation of French territory.
