22/7/1914 Conrad returns from holiday, Berchtold sends a copy of his ultimatum to Berlin

Conrad returns to Vienna. The army chief of staff had been on holiday in his estate in the South Tyrol, near the Italian border.

Berchtold finally sends a copy of his Serbian ultimatum to Berlin. It is presented as a draft, even though it has already been despatched under seal to the embassy in Belgrade. The Germans will not propose any changes or softening of its terms, which is just as well, for it is to be served on the Serbians tomorrow.
