ment is sending a note to the United

French and American , views on the

France "reaches an identical conclu
sion." ' it adds that France "never
varied in her intention to support the

The French note says it was with
these principles in mind that France
recognized General Baron Wrangel
and decided not to approve the Soviet's
terms to Poland unless they conform
with these principles. It concludes
that France is "happy to note once
again the most thorough harmony be
twen the sentiments animating the
American and French peoples when
there is at stake the future of civiliza
tion." Premier Millerand says that France
is "entirely in accord with the princi
ples formulated" in the American note.
