The Commander-in-Chief dare not fret. If the military department or the Commander-in-Chief does not reject the idea of capturing Warsaw, we must capture it (what extra measures for this? tell me).
To talk of expediting the armistice when the enemy is attacking, is idiocy.
Once the Poles have gone over to an offensive along the entire line, one should not whimper (like Danishevsky) for that is ridiculous.
A counter-move should be devised: military measures ( enveloping, dragging out all negotiations, etc.).
