Probably late evening: Telegram 174 concerning the “halt

Probably late evening: Telegram 174 concerning the “halt in Belgrade” proposal and opening direct talks with Russia has been in Vienna since 4.00 A.M. but Tschirschky talks to Berchtold about it much later in the day.
Berchtold is willing to repeat to Russia that Austria-Hungary will make no territorial acquisitions at the expense of Serbia but he needs time to consider the “halt in Belgrade” idea. This response doesn’t get to Berlin until early next day. There is also doubt that Tschirschky presents these proposals with any conviction. [More]
