Austro-Hungarian Red Book: Berchtold to the Signatory Embassies, the Balkan Missions and the Imperial and Royal Minister to Sweden, 23 July 1914

On 23 July 1914, the Austro-Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs Leopold Count Berchtold (pictured) sent a telegram to the Austro-Hungarian Ministers to the Signatory Embassies, the Balkan Missions, and Sweden. In his telegram, he informs the Ambassadors of the delivery of the Austro-Hungarian ultimatum to Serbia to enable them to notify the governments they are accredited to.

The presentation of our note in Belgrade did not take place until 18:00 today, Thursday; the term for the answer therefore expires Saturday at 18:00. I beg you to correct the note accordingly.
