Transcript 58 caractere d'une question euro- peenne, et la declaration de cette meme Puissance qu'elle consentait a ne pas insister sur des demandes incompatibles avec les droits souverains de la Serbie. La proposition de la Russie fut jugee par FAllemagne unacceptable pour FAutriche-Hongrie. Simultanement on recut a Saint-Petersbourg la nouvelle de la proclamation de la mobilisation generale par FAutriche- Hongrie. En meme temps les hostilites continuaient sur le territoire serbe et Belgrade fut bombardee derechef. L'insucces de nos propositions pacifiques nous obligea d'elargir les mesures de precaution militaires. Le Cabinet de Berlin nous ayant adresse une question a ce sujet, il lui fut repondu que la Russie etait forcee de commencer ses armements pour se premunir contre toutes eventualites. Tout en prenant cette mesure de precaution, la Russie n'en dis- continuait pas moins de recher- cher de toutes ses forces une issue de cette situation et declara etre prere a accepter, tout moyen de solution du conflit qui comporterait F observation des conditions posees par nous. Malgre cette communication conciliante, le Gouvernement allemand, le 18 (31) juillet, adressa au Gouvernement russe la demande d'avoir a suspendre ses mesures militaires a midi du 19 juillet (lcr aoiit), en menacant, dans le cas contraire, de pro- ceder a une mobilisation gene- rale.

All this time hostilities were continuing on Servian territory, and Belgrade was bombarded afresh. The failure of our prosposals for peace compelled us to extend the scope of our precautionary military measures. The Berlin Cabinet questioned us on this, and we replied that Russia was compelled to begin preparations so as to be readv for every emergency. But while taking this precautionary step, Russia did not on that account abandon her strenuous efforts to find some solution of the situation, and she announced that she was ready to accept any proposed settlement of the problem that might be put forward, provided it complied with the conditions laid down by her. In spite of this conciliatory communication, the German Government on the 18th (31st July) demanded of the Russian Government that they should suspend their military measures by midday on the " 19th July (1st August), and threatened, should they fail to comply, to proceed to general mobilisation. On the following day, the 19th July (1st August), the German Ambassador, on behalf of his
