NotesNews: 28 October: "After long debate on the peace terms which Hitler is trying to impose on France, the Vichy Cabinet issued a statement which declared merely that agreement had been reached, in pricipal, for collaboration with Germany. Laval is returning to Paris to meet the Germans. Reports reaching America indicate that the messages which the King and President Roosevelt have sent to Marshal Petain have aroused disputes in the Vichy Government, and that, in consequence, a Cabinet meeting which was to have been held has been postponed. ..."
