Later: While waiting at the station

Later: While waiting at the station for the train to Salonika Pašić gets Paču’s phone call. Paču warns him that the expected note is not going to be an ordinary note and begs him to return to Belgrade but he refuses.
Only at the next station when he gets a telegram from Crown Prince Alexander ordering him to return does he change his mind. Pašić may have been hoping his absence from Belgrade would give time for Serbia to prepare its response and allow friendly great powers to intervene.
