Wo could not be in that position unless wo were backed up by General Turner and the etaft iu England. Thero is a feeling of cooperation which never existed hefore, and. better than the laison we have between Franco and England and Canada, it is (or our fighting forces." Sir Edward Kemp, in proposing the health of Premier Borden, said the ministers in Ottawa aometiraes displayed a misconception of what is going on here and in France.
