File No. 763.72/2185
The Minister in Roumania, Servia, and Bulgaria ( Vopicka ) to the Secretary of State
[Received October 13, midnight.]
148. Your cipher telegram 1601 still partially illegible. Bulgaria is at war with Servia. Bulgarian Army attacked Servia yesterday afternoon near Vranïa and Knjaževac. Unless Servian Army receives immediately strong help from the Entente I do not believe it can last more than one month. Roumania will remain neutral because the King is a German and Russian Army is weak at present. Opinion here prevails that late Prime Minister of Greece had to resign because he could not make Roumania join Greece to help Servia. I am sure only bad diplomacy of Entente is responsible for Bulgaria’s alliance with Germany.
