Clemenceau. Why didn't you say that right away? You have smuggled in a Syndicalist. It is high time to adjourn.
(Somebody knocks.) Servant (enters and hands a note to Mr. Wilson).
Wilson. One moment, M. Clemenceau. I received the report from Mr. Mott I asked for: An excerpt of the original Christian teachings.
Clemenceau. Well, I am anxious to hear against whom the fïrst Christians have preached the cross. Read.
Wilson (i). The labourer is worthy of his hire. Luke io, 7.
Clemenceau. That is nothing new, Socialism.
Wilson (2). To him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. Rom. 4, 4.
Lloyd George. Marxism, simply Marxism.
Wilson (3). If any would not work, neither should he eat. 2 Thess. 3, 10.
Clemenceau. Purest Bolshevism.
Wilson (4). And all that believed were together and had all things common; And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. Acts 2, 44. 45.
Lloyd George. That beats it all, Communism.
Wilson (5). Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into thé ears of the Lord of sabaoth. James 5, 1. 4.
Clemenceau. The third international.
