To the President:
Cables from France today indicate a continuous advance of the American forces over a front of twenty (20) miles from the Argonne Forest to the Valley of the Meuse, North of Verdun, passing beyond the Hindenburg line on the entire front and gaining back one hundred square miles of French territory. The movement was sharp and rapid. Our casualties were light.
