Noteson reverse : Folls 11 Oct 1939 right hand margin : pencil marking "Hitler's overtures of peace rebuffed by Britain and France" Government's Statement on Hitler's Reichstag Speech. The following statement on Hitler's Reichstag speech was issued on the authority of H.M. Government on Oct. 7: "...The second part of his speech contains what Herr Hitler describes as 'a few more proposals for peace'. In their present form these proposals are in many respects vague and obscure, but it is noted that they contain no suggestion of reparation for the wrongs done by Germany to other peoples. Nevertheless, they will, as has been declared by the Prime Minister and the Foreign Secretary, be subjected to careful examination in consultation with the Government of the Dominions and the French Republic. ..."
