CHAPTER XXVIII - THE PLANS AGAIN

sight that sent a shudder down Von Holberg's spine and he turned his eyes away.

" Don't be a fool," said the other curtly. " It is what we have been trying for, all this time. Austria brings in Germany, and Russia forces France to fight. England does not know of the Secret Treaty between France and Russia ; but when things once start, she will find the Entente Cordiale something more than a gaily coloured ribbon-it will be a chain of iron which will drag them into the war too . . . though I'm not altogether sure," he added, as if talking to himself. ... " That fellow Wray-their Foreign Secretary, you know-he's a bit white-livered. We may have to try some other means. How would the Emperor consider the question of invading Belgium ? In three weeks we will have war-and Germany will be at France's throat. And the only way is to strike unexpectedly by taking a short cut through Belgium. France is not prepared for this. Tell his Majesty what my ideas on the matter are, Von Holberg," said the Master, in conclusion. "And let me know what he says. You may have to return in person to acquaint me.
