He left St. Petersburg for' 1 -Kischeneff—the head-quarters of the army massed in! Bessarabia—on the morning of the 20th of April. On the 22od, he reviewed the Ninth Army Corps at TJmer- 1? an<^ Birsula, and at the latter place addressed of the inspected troops in a brief speech. Before your departure," he said, "I £ 1Te you my blessing. If jou should encounter the enemy, show 1 yourselves brave, and strive to uphold the ancient glory' of your regiments. There are among you young men who have not been under fire. I hope they will npt' J show themselves inferior to their veteran comrades, but will prove themselves their equals. I trust that you may soon return covered with glory. Q-ood-bye, gentlemen!" Either on that or some similar occa-! sion, the Bmperor is reported to have said: I have c. done everything in my power to avoid war and^ blood- shed. Nobody can say we have not been patient, or j that the war has been of our seeking. We have prac- tised patience to the last degree; but there come's a time when even patience must end." The Emperor was accompanied by the Grand Duke Nicholas, the i Czarewitah, General Ignatieff, General Milutin 1 (Minister of War), and a staff and suite of nearly 1 three hundred persons.
