Scope and content

Letters from Frances Stevenson to her parents from Paris with accounts of the 1919 Peace Conference between 16th April and 17th June 1919, giving an insight into how both she and Lloyd George viewed the treaty terms. Frances notes that she believed the terms will lead to 'a good peace, not one that will cause another war in 10 or 20 years time' while 'The PM says it is a terrible document' and that 'there has been no such treaty presented to any nation since Carthage'. Frances also notes concerns over the length of time that the talks were taking noting 'that unless you get the treaty signed now, there will be Bolshevism everywhere'.
