Another good day all round for the Allies if you believe everything that is reported about them in today's Daily Telegraph. All was still faring excellently for the Italians, and we had two reporters, W. T. Massey and A. Beaumont, on hand to report on this (page 9). The French meanwhile could boast of the capture of a railway station (same page) whilst “the Russian victory … on the Dniester was of a much more emphatic character than from the first reports appeared to have been the case” even though the Germans were reportedly back on the attack (page 9) and we admit on page 10 that “none but the most meagre descriptions” of this conflict had reached the West. Add in the usual optimistic outlook at Gallipoli despite “the successes of the enemy,” this time from a Reuter’s correspondent on page 7, and it was still the case that readers of the Telegraph could surely only be confident about the final outcome for Britain as well as her dominions, colonies and allies.
