London: Haldane receives a letter from Hoyos setting out the reasons why Austria-Hungary is forced to take strong action against Serbia.
There is a proven connection with the assassins. They had been equipped and trained by Serbian officers and smuggled across the frontier by customs officials.
Serbia is working to bring about a revolution in the Austro-Hungarian Southern Slav provinces. Russia stands behind Serbia. Vienna has to act even at the risk of a European war.
He points out that if Russia is successful in the Balkans it will then turn its attention towards India.
