(These deal with the German colonization in the Pacific. Written as they are during and immediately after the War, they are a marked anti-German bias, and are written with the avowed object of preventing German Pacific Colonies from returning to German hands. Their value, therefore, is in the sources cited—sometimes incorrectly—rather than in the arguments.)
