Transcript """"'■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■I ■VBI et un ordre du Souverain a Far- mee, ou nous reprimerions Fesprit hostile contre FAutriche en nous faisant a nous-memes des re- proches d'une faiblesse crimi- nelle envers nos menees perfides. On nous impose ensuite Fad- mission des fonctionnaires austro-hongrois en Serbie pour participer avec les notres a ['instruction et pour surveiller l'execution des autres conditions indiquees dans la note. Nous avons re$u un delai de quarante- huit heures pour accepter le tout, faute de quoi la Legation d'Autriche - Hongrie quittera Belgrade. Nous sommes prets a accepter les conditions austro- hongroises qui sont compatibles avec la situation d'un Etat independant, ainsi que celles dont Facceptation nous sera conseillee par votre Majeste; toutes les personnes dont la participation a Fattentat sera demontree seront severement ptmis par nous. Certaines parmi ces demandes ne pour- raient etre executees sans des changements de notre legislation, ce qui exige du temps. On nous a donne un delai trop court. Nous pouvons etre. attaques apres l'expiration du delai par Farmee austro-hon- groise qui se concentre sur notre frontiere. II nous est impossible de nous defendre et nous supplions votre Majeste de nous donner son aide le plus tot possible. La bienveillance precieuse de votre Majeste qui s'est manifested tant de fois a notre egard nous fait esperer fermemement que cette fois encore notre appel sera entendu par son genereux coeur slave. En ces moments difficiles j'interprete les sentiments du peuple serbe, qui supplie votre Government in the " Official Journal," and for an order from the Sovereign to the army, in which we are to check the spirit of hostilitv towards Austria and to blame ourselves for criminal weakness as regards out treacherous intrigues. We are further required to admit Austro- Hungarian officials into Servia to take part with our officials at the trial and to superintend the carrying out of the other conditions laid down in the note. We are required to accept these demands in their entirety within forty-eight hours, failing which the Austro-Hungarian Legation will leave Belgrade. We are prepared to accept those of the Austro- Hungarian conditions which are compatible with the position of an independent State, as well as those to which your Majesty may advise us to agree, and all those persons whose complicity in the crime may be proved will be severely punished bv us. Certain of the demands could not be carried out without changes in our legislation, which would need time. We have been allowed too short a time limit. We mav be attacked at the expiration of the time limit by the Austro-Hungarian army which is concentrating upon our frontier. We are unable to defend ourselves and we beg your Majesty to come to our aid as soon as possible. The much appreciated goodwill which your Majesty has so often shown towards us inspires us with the firm belief that once again our appeal to your noble Slav heart will not pass unheeded. At this critical moment I echo the feelings of the Servian people in praying your 't
