CHAPTER XII
THE DIPLOMATIC BREAK

The realization on the part of Austria that she had gone too far and was treading on dangerous ground, seems to have been first awakened by the partial mobilization of Russia. M. Sazonof had hoped that this military measure would be regarded as a clear intimation that Russia must be consulted regarding the fate of Serbia, and the hope was largely justified. Count Berchtold, who two days before had brusquely refused to allow direct conversations with Russia by withholding the necessary powers from the Austrian Ambassador, agreed on July 30, to a resumption of such conversations; his refusal, he explained, had been due to a misunderstanding. And for the first time Austria made a concession of enormous importance when she admitted the subject of the AustroSerb quarrel to discussion. The Austrian Ambassador was authorized "to discuss what arrangement would be compatible with the dignity and prestige which was of equal importance to both Empires." And the Russian Ambassador gave his assurance that "his Government would take into consideration the demands of the Austrian Monarchy in a far more generous spirit than was expected."1

The general mobilization of the Russian forces on the next day (July 31) increased the pacific spirit
