W. P. Crozier to Frederick Voigt.

Location: [Manchester].

He says that, regretfully, he cannot use his article tonight because it does not fall into line with the paper's current questioning tone regarding the Anglo-French pact; articles are easier to use when the matter is presented as representing a particular point of view, rather than asserting a strong editorial line. Although he has doubts about the latter, he thinks that that they need raise questions about it. If they ally themselves with France now, it might make a German attack on Britain greater. He discusses the idea of 'collective security' and the 'anti-German coalition'.
