Wilson (13). And before him shall be gathered all nations; and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats. And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Matt. 26, 32. 33.

Clemenceau. That means you, Wilson. Place the Boches on the one side and all other nations on the other side and you have the League of Nations.

Wilson (14). Judge not, that ye be not judged. And thinkest thou this, o man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God? Matt. 7, 1. Rom. 2, 3.

Clemenceau. Après nous le déluge. Is that all?

Wilson. More than enough.

Clemenceau. What is the doctrine that contains such nonsense?

Lloyd George. The Gospel, M. Clemenceau.

Clemenceau. Then the Gospel is nothing but a chantage allemand.

Lloyd George. Don't say that, M. Clemenceau. It is not wise to act according to the Gospel, but wise to preach it. Don't worry. We, the English, shall not bother about it until the Germans have paid the uttermost farthing. You don't know the English. Nobody knows them except me and Bernard Shaw.

Wilson. I hope, Mr. Lloyd George, your people will be as satisfied with you as the world is with me.

Clemenceau. And I with myself.

Gentlemen, we have lost much time with this foreigner. Let us return to our own affairs.
