THE BLOOD OF MARLEE CHAPTER XL.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 28 December 1939
THE BLOOD OF MARLEE By Charles Broome ? /L_ CHAPTER XL.— Continued. And the cry roused Dick, brought his senses back, and in that moment in which Choooan had released his hold of the heavy Colt he pulled the trigger.

To. ask Britain and France to sit with Hitler now at a peace table would be to ask them -to confess' that ..they were wrong in going to war, and to inform Hitler that the neutrals, particularly the United States, believe that-; peace on his terms would ' be more desirable that war or any objective.
