It was asserted that every effort at redrafting emphasised the fact that changes could not be made without offending the susceptibilities of some nation. It was pointed out in high circles that an effort to provide special recognition of the Monroe doctrine would probably lead to Japan. proposing that her special rights in China should be recognised.

Clemenceau that America would not support the full French demands in reference to the west bank of the Rhine, and would not support France's opposition to . the amalgamation of German-Austria with Germany, whereupon, according to report, 'M. Clemenceau offered his resignation on March 17th.
