I think all this talk about age is foolish. Every time I`m one year older, everyone else is too.

Anonymous: could you write something about when richard came home after gillian put away all the portraits of jimmy?


She told him, after, when the room was cast in moon-whites and night-blacks and the shadows has ensconced her delicate features, that she couldn’t bear to see Jimmy’s eyes looking out from empty rooms anymore.

The silence swelled between them.

Richard knew she still felt the sear of it, too.

Jimmy’s gaze. All-seeing and all-over.

28th July 1914 - Austria-Hungary declares war on Serbia

On July 28, 1914, one month to the day after Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria and his wife were killed by a Serbian nationalist in Sarajevo, Austria-Hungary declares war on Serbia, effectively beginning the First World War.

The following telegram sent by Count Leopold von Berchtold (Austro-Hungarian Foreign Minister) at 11.10 am to M. N. Pashitch (Serbian Prime Minister and Foreign Minister), who received it at 12.30 pm

28 July 1914

The Royal Serbian Government not having answered in a satisfactory manner the note of July 23, 1914, presented by the Austro-Hungarian Minister at Belgrade, the Imperial and Royal Government are themselves compelled to see to the safeguarding of their rights and interests, and, with this object, to have recourse to force of arms.

Austria-Hungary consequently considers herself henceforward in state of war with Serbia.
