Excerpt

This book bears the title of the National Convention held by the League to Enforce Peace in Philadelphia, May 16th and 17th, 1918. It contains forty-six addresses delivered at that Conven- tion by perhaps the most distinguished group of men and women that has voiced America's purpose in the world's greatest war.

These speeches merge into one supreme message--The War Must Be Won by the absolute defeat of Germany, Military Au- tocracy must be ended, and, to justify the sacrifices of America and her Allies, a Permanent Peace Must Be Established, guaranteed by a League of Nations.

The addresses are epitomized in the platform adopted at the final session of the Convention, and in the Declaration by the Governors and former Governors' Conference at Independence Hall.

At the Allied War Dinner, which closed the meeting, repre- sentatives of the United States, Great Britain, France and Canada expressed the purpose which already has leagued in a common cause the free nations at war with Germany. This bond, and the machinery already created to make it effective, is an earnest of that complete and lasting international partnership which the League to Enforce Peace was organized to promote and establish.

The "Win the War for Permanent Peace" Convention defined the high mission of the League, outlined its present work and its aspirations. This book breathes the crusaders' spirit that animates a great people engaged in a Holy War and determined to let no sacrifices stand in the way of victory.
