File No. 763.72/1829

The Minister in Roumania, Servia, and Bulgaria ( Vopicka ) to the Secretary of State


85. Roumania is ready to join the Triple Entente within a few days, ten, if her demands consisting of Transylvania, Bukovina, and that part of Hungary called Banat, are granted. Russia offers her Transylvania and all, excepting Cernowitz, the capital, of Bukovina, which she wants to keep for her strategical position. If an agreement is made within a few days it is rumored that Bratianu will fall.

Regarding Bulgaria, I expect that it is waiting for the completion of the contract upon which the mutual agreement was reached between her and the Triple Entente.

Regarding Servia, latest reports from all sides are that the typhus is checked and that there is no danger for travelers in Servia. Great credit is given to the Americans.
