Face to Face in Paris
After a brief visit to the north of England and a longer trip to Italy, the President returned to Paris on the morning of 7 January. On the day before, Derby had called on House to learn what the President’s reaction to official Britain had been. He reported that Wilson looked forward to close co-operation with the British throughout the Conference and especially on the League. Derby was surprised to find that the President foresaw the United States and the United Kingdom telling the world to join the League or suffer the consequences. He added that Wilson saw warm Anglo-American relations as the key to world security and peace, as well as being a check on French ambitions overseas.1
