8.45 P.M.: King George replies to a message from the Prince Henry. He says he is glad to hear that William is working for peace.
He puts forward Grey’s “halt in Belgrade” formula. “My Government is doing its utmost suggesting to Russia and France to suspend further military preparations, if Austria will consent to be satisfied with occupation of Belgrade … as a hostage for satisfactory settlement of her demands, other countries meanwhile suspending their war preparations”.
