SYMPATHY IN FRANCE
M. Rénnaudel, Socialist Deputy, has sent M. Herriot a letter, in which he says:
“Blood is flowing in Georgia; that little people has risen and is defending its will to independence by force. The Russian Republic proclaims the right of peoples to dispose of themselves, and inscribed, and inscribed that in the treaty it concluded with Georgia before subjugating her. I pray you on the occasion of the forthcoming negotiations with Russia to make friendly representations to the Russian Government, and to suggest to it that it should stop bloodshed.” Mr. Rénnaudel concludes by suggesting that the intervention of the League of Nations might be sought.
