Orphans of Versailles: The Germans in Western Poland, 1918-1939
A pioneer in the tradition of English womenÕs fiction, Charlotte Lennox was valued friend to both Samuel Richardson and Samuel Johnson and a major influence on Jane Austen. The heroine of Charlotte LennoxÕs Henrietta is a young Englishwoman who resists her aunt's pressure to convert to Catholicism and is set adrift in London society. But unlike many of her passive, vulnerable contemporaries in fiction, the admirable Henrietta makes her way in the world relying on her own cleverness, conviction, and wit. This groundbreaking work of satire and human folly is republished here in a fully annotated modern edition.

Page 19 - We agreed among ourselves and we agreed with Germany upon certain general principles. The whole course of the conference has been made up of a series of attempts, especially by France, to break down this agreement, to get territory, and to impose crushing indemnities.
