Dear Admiral

Mr Ellis Ashmead Bartlett—one of the foremost British correspondents—and one of the ablest and most experienced, has lately returned from three months in Vienna & Buda Pest for the London Daily Telegraph. On Monday last he lunched with Mr Lloyd George, Mr Bonar Law, & Gen Wilson—giving them a full account of the Austro-Hungarian situation, of which he is perhaps better informed than any one in Paris at present. He gave Mr. Lloyd George a confidential report in writing of the situation, and said he would like President Wilson to have a copy also, thinking it possible that Mr Lloyd George might report a part, but not all, of his report. Wishing the President to receive it without fail, he asked me if I could have it delivered to him—the mails being uncertain. I therefore enclose it to you, begging that you will pass it on to the President. I would not trouble you except for the great importance of the document.

I remain

Yours sincerely

Wade Chance
