Subject: Re: United Nations (an Americanism!)

Barry's slightly earlier citation for _United Nations_ is a very important
one. It should be noted, however, that Raleigh C. Minor used the term
_United Nations_ to designate a proposed federal union of nations in his
book _A Republic of Nations_ (1918).
