Reactions after the Declaration of Greater Lebanon

Description

Letter from Bishop Elias Pierre Howayek, Maronite Patriarch
To Mr. Barrère, French Ambassador in Rome
Lebanon, Neo Kannobin, September 8, 1920.

“I have just attended the Proclamation of Greater Lebanon, and I am still under the effect of the emotions that evolved at this solemn moment. France has done perfect secular work with the Lebanese to see their national aspirations completed. This accomplishment is due to the efforts and the wisdom of General Gouraud, who solved the Syrian problem, so quickly and well, to the great satisfaction of your friends in Lebanon.”
