Sunday, April 29, 1917

Came to Mount Vernon as a member of the British & French War Commissions for World War I; known as ?the hero of the Marne?; placed a bronze wreath on the tomb of George Washington, with the words: ?In the French Army all venerate the name and memory of Washington. I respectfully salute here the great soldier and lay upon his Tomb the palm we offer our soldiers who have died for their country.?
