Southwestern Historical Quarterly
It was rather a curious proof of House's good feeling towards this
country that he did not seem the least annoyed with me though he
knew that I had written a very severe criticism of his devoted friend
Wilson in last Saturday's 'Spectator.' 1"
Of course I may be quite wrong but I should like to say, for what my
opinion is worth, that House, though American 'first, last, and all the
time' is not a false man and that the hints which he drops of deep pro-
English sympathies-for he never avows them-are not a piece of ex-
traordinarily clever diplomatic finesse but are quite sincere. I can of
course quite imagine that when he gets to the atmosphere of Washing-
ton he is less pro-British than he is here. That would only be natural.
I am inclined to think that he believes that in the end the Germans
will force the Americans to come in against them, but this of course
may be only a surmise on my part.
