LONDON, May 7. The "Daily Telegraph" publishes the following extract 'from Lord French's book: —

"On August 31, 1914, Joffre's demand that the British should stand and fight was urgently repeated, and backed by messages from M. Poiucare and the British Government, yet simultaneoiislv the Fifth French Army was beiria: thrown back and widening the gap. while Lord Kitchener was assuring the Home Government our losses were small and deficiencies made good. Neither on this, nor several subsequent days, did one man. horse, or gun reach me." Lord French adds: "I profoundly believe that if I had yielded to these violent solicitations' the whole Allied Army would have been thrown back over the/Marne and Paris would have fallen."
