Subject

Reactions after the Declaration of Greater Lebanon

Description

Beirut, September 27, 1920
For Mr. Terrier. Press Notes

During a three-day trip to Tripoli and Qannoubine, where I was received at the summer residence of the Maronite Patriarch, I could see unanimous acclamations, and general enthusiasm, in favor of Greater Lebanon and the recognition of the henceforth independent populations under the rule of France, the liberator. I declared to all that it was necessary, not only for the wealth of the country but to put an end to emigration and bring back the emigrants to Greater Lebanon, where France promises to bring security, prosperity, and justice for all.
