THE PARIS TREATIES AND AFTER, 1919-1925
|"1. Open convenants of peace, openly arrived at, . . .2|
The subsequent addresses were: the Address to Congress on Feb. 11, 1918 (containing the Four Principles); the Speech at Baltimore on April 6, 1918; the Speech at Mount Vernon on July 4, 1918 (stating the Four Ends or Objects); and the Speech at New York on Sept. 27, 1918 (with the Five Particulars).
For the text of these speeches, see 1 Temperley, Hist. of the Peace Conference of Paris ( 1920-24), 431-48. With the exception of the two latter, they are also printed in Scott, Pres. Wilson's Foreign Policy ( 1918). For the text of the Fourteen Points, see Scott, op. cit., 359-62 or 1 Temperley, op. cit., 433-35. They may also be found in Latané, Isolation to Leadership ( 2d ed., 1923), 205 ff. These should be read in the light of Premier Lloyd George's statement of British War Aims on January 5, 1918. See 1 Temperley, op. cit., 189-92.
For the text of the diplomatic notes referred to in the text, see 1 Temperley, op. cit., 448-58.
Obviously, under the conditions which existed there, this point could be observed very imperfectly at Paris in 1919; but it: nevertheless constitutes an ideal or a fundamental principle of the New Diplomacy which can be increasingly realized under a New World Order.
