The hand of Province weighs heavily upon us. In the conflict into wloh I have been drawn, not voluntarily but throng] the force of circumstances, every human calculatia has been frustrated, save only the confidence I laced in the heroic bravery of my valiant army, The more grievous are the heavy losses by which the ranks of those brave men have 'beer smitten, and my paternal heart feels the bittmess of that grief with, all the. families affected To put an end to the un- equal contest, to gair time and opportunity to fill up the voids occasioed by the campaign, ana no conosntrate my forces aainat the hostile troops occu- pying the northern portm of my empire, I have con- sented, with great sacjfioe, to negotiations for the conclusion of an armiatie. "I now turn conSdeiiy to the faithful peoples of my kingdom of Ilan gay, and to that readiness to make sacrifices so reputedly displayed in arduous times. i r The united exerfcion&f my entire empire must be set in motion, that thejonolusion of the wished-for peace may be secured upn fair conditions. It is my profound bdef that the warlike sons of Hungary, actuated by tb feeling of hereditary fidelity, will voluntarily hasten uder my banners to the assist- ance of their kindred, ad for the protection of their country, also immediate! threatened by the events of the war. Rally, therefore, in'orce to the defence of the invaded empire; be woihy sons of your valiant fore- fathers, whose heroic deet; gained never-fading wreaths of laurel for the glory ofjhe Hungarian name.
