FRANCE Anatole (1844-1924)
L.A.S. "Anatole France", , to a friend; 2 pages in-8 on the letterhead of the Hotel Powers in Paris.
On the war and revolution in Russia.
Charles Rappoport sees "terrible threats hanging over the nascent freedom of his people. "In Russia," he says, "revolution will kill war or war will kill revolution". He is of the opinion that he supports the Duma. ...England is suffering more cruelly than is commonly believed from the blockade and may be reduced to peace if she fails to destroy the sharks that devour her ships. ...Here the sensible people, who are few in number, do not praise our General Staff for having allowed the Germans to carry out a perilous and difficult operation, the object of which is not yet clear. It is believed that the Germans wanted to delay our offensive and to transport it to a terrain chosen by them"...
