Notes
Content: Written on border: "1912." Printed on border: "Whatever the real reasons for the war may be, there is no doubt that the forces of the Balkan League believe, in the words of King Ferdinand's manifesto to the Bulgarian nation, that they are engaged in a "struggle of the Cross against the Crescent, of liberty against tyranny." The proclamation was posted throughout the country, and was eagerly read by the people, its lessons being impressed upon the soldiers by the priests as they blessed them on their way to the front."
