Il continues: "On the one hand. Germrt'n spoalcera and agents show suspicious readiness to dilate oil the food shortage and gon-tvral discomfort in Germany, with tho obvious intention of ionlling a ring of ulncerlty to Germany's profession of anxiety for peace.' At the same time, noulra! emissaries of well known an-.] tCTlidents and tendencies are undcr-toofl IQ have ati'ived recently in Eng-Jand and other jiUied countries for. the --purpose of suggesting ,that K.the allies" will only'Sll6w a pacific disposition they,will .find Gefrmauy rondy"to meet thdiri on moderate teruifev' In: eomc instn^^ces these emissaries are believed to have put forward proposals as to the best policy for the allies to follow."

Dr. Von Kuohlmann, wlio is not charged with any official mission as far as the London legation is awaro. These netitral emissaries should save tlierasolves much trouble . and some personal'danger it they would recognize clearly that Great Britain is not to, bo duped like, the Bolshevlki and JJkralnian dupes." 0 NOT-MFB WIIHSn Irish Protestant Primate Be lieves Govt.
